A knife’s blade is sharp, but the tip of a person’s tongue is sharper. Words could be sweet, but their meaning poisonous. The north pole is far from the south pole, and one’s mouth is far from his sacrum. Whose value is greater? Your mother who nurtured you with her milk or the girl who captured your heart? Your relatives will protect you, and your mother care for you.
