Here are two Sumerian proverbs that I like to think of as a pair. To me, they speak of the elite minority who enslaves the rest of humanity with debt in order to enjoy their unearned spoils.

"The fox could not build his own house, and so he came to the house of his friend as a conqueror."
- We were lulled into submission with religion and authority then gutted and robbed.

"The fox, having urinated into the sea, said 'the whole of the sea is my urine'."
- That same fox that gutted us now tells us that his piss is something to be admired.

Thanks for posting.

Those are actually kind of creepy. I can't get those visuals out of my head now.

I meant "dinner of herbs", the first one you quoted.

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got

Favourite funny
Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes.
Because that way when you judge him, you'll be a mile away and you'll have his shoes.
