this weeks proverb
אַז דו טוסט וואָס דו ווילסט, מעג דאָך יענער רעדן וואָס ער וויל

transliterated
az du tust vos du vilst, meg dokh yener redn vos er vil

the proverb actually means
if you do what you want, then someone else can say what he wants

translated to Hebrew
אם אתה עושה מה שאתה רוצה, אז לההוא מותר להגיד עליך מה שהוא רוצה

from a different prospective
אַז מ'האַלט זיך פאַר אַן אייזל זאָל מען זיך נישט בּאַליידיקן אַז מענטשן רײַטן אויף אים

transliterated
az m'halt zikh far an eyzl, zol men zikh nit baleydikn az mentshn raytn af em

in English
If you behave like an ass, don't get insulted if people mount to ride on you

in Hebrew
אם אדם מתנהג כמו חמור, שלא יעלב אם אנשים רוכבים עליו
