Don't Fire the Worthless

If a worthless fellow be with thee, do not let him go, or else one worse will come to thee.
--- Arab Saying

As well as in Japan, patient people are respected for their nature in the Arab nations. This proverb is often addressed as a lesson to a person who complains of his servant.

本でもそうだが、辛抱強い人はアラブでも尊敬される。このことわざはしばしば召使について不満を漏らす者への戒めとして発せられる。
