this week's proverb
מענטשן זענען פאָרזיכטיק נישט אַראָפּצושלינגען אַ לעבּעדיקער מוראַשקע אָבּער עס אַרט זיי נישט אײַנצושלינגען אַ לעבּעדיקן מענטש

transliterated
mentshn zenen forzikhtik nit ayntsushlingen a morashke ober es art zey nit ayntsu'shlingen a lebedikn mentsh

the proverb actually means
people are cautious not to swallow a live ant, yet they are careless about eating another human being alive

translated to Hebrew

זהירים הם בני אדם שלא לבלוע נמלה חיה ואין הם זהירים שלא לבלוע אדם חי 
(רבי ברוך ממזבוז)
