The devil's flour

Postby Elisa » Sat Mar 23, 2013 3:27 pm

Today my neighbour was very angry because someone stole his password and his credit card money.

He told me this proverb and want to share with you:

"The devil's flour turns all into bran". Do you agree?

The devil’s flour…. means that if you make money in a dishonest way you will never be happy.

I meant your neighbor. Aren't you friends with him? I think you won't discuss matters like that if you aren't close to each other. I was just wondering how did it happen?

Are you so reserved in your country?
This is not a personal matter...

I don't know if I am just being reserved. You know here you will be mistaken as someone who is boastful if you tell this to someone who is not your close friend. :-) doesn't that make sense?

Sorry Krisi,

it doesn't make sense for me. I cannot understand your thought in this case.
In my village this is not a intimate topic :)
