Which got me to thinking about fire safety...
reH latlh qabDaq qul tuj law' Hoch tuj puS
The fire is always hotter on someone else's face. PK
DopDaq qul yIchenmoH QobDI' ghu'
Set fire on the side when there is danger. PK
HochvaD pung Hutlh qul
flames have no mercy for anyone PB
And how about this all-purpose advice:
tujpa' qul pub SuvwI' 'Iw
A warrior's blood boils before the fire is hot. TKW
TKT 32: This proverb suggests that it is better to take the initiative than to simply react to situations.
