Proverbs

种瓜得瓜种豆得豆 zhòng guā dé guā zhòng dòu dé dòu Live with the consequences of your actions
煮豆燃萁 zhǔ dòu rán qí To stir up family quarrels. The stalks supported the beans when they were growing so it seems disloyal for them to be used to cook the beans. To foment disorder which will harm the whole community including yourself.
