Yea, if we can use what we have carefully, we will never lack of anything. There is an old saying in China,"saving is a kind of virtue." and I think it is also a resposibility nowadays. Thank you for your response, Have a nice day! ^_^

The proverbs I like the most don't really translate in english, however my motto is : ,, We do what we must because we can''

"Great Minds discuss ideas, Average minds discuss events, Small minds discuss people" "God gives every bird it's food, But he who's not thrown into his nest" "He or she loses money loses much, He or she who loses a friend loses more, He or she who loses faith loses it all"

Hi,I'd glad to share, "power invariably means both responsiblity and danger", in fact, it's not a proverb, just one sentance said by famous person,but I think it's right,and I like it so much.
