Preface
Introduction
Aelion-Errera family tree
  1. A dream has no master
  2. In war, law is silent
  3. The wolf sheds its hair, and not its hands
  4. My departure is in the palm of my hand; my return is not
  5. A thousand worries don't pay a single debt
  6. Neither rain without thunder, nor childbirth without a pain
  7. With patience, even grass can be made into silk
  8. The wolf and sheep appear in the same story
  9. I run and run and find myself in one place
  10.  In a time of hunger, no bread is bad
  11. Within our clothes, our bodies cry
  12. Weight the gold, weigh the lead, weigh the man most of all
  13. Neither a bride without brows, nor a wedding without complaint
