Keep out of Other People's Problem

Do not be present at the measuring of the grain which does not belong to you; you will get your beard dusty, and you will get tired of carrying away the grain.
--- Arab Saying

For example, if your friend thinks to divorce his wife, you should not meddle in their talks. If you get into other people’s problem, you will get involved in their quarrels & tired of resolving it. In Japan, people say, A god who you have not touched, will not curse you.


とえば、友達が離婚を考えているとしても、介入するべきではない。自分の問題でもないものに首を突っ込むと、喧嘩に巻き込まれてへとへとになる。日本では、触らぬ神に祟りなし、という。
