this week's proverb
צוקער, ווען עס צוגייט אינגאַנצן אין וואַסער, איז דער זיסטער. דאָס גלײַכן , דער מענטש, וואָס מאַכט פון זיך גאָרנישט, קען העלפן אַנדערע צום בּעסטן

tsuker, ven es tsugeyt ingantsn in vaser, iz der zister. dos glaykhn, der mentsh, vos makht fun zikh gornit, ken helfn an'de're tsum bestn

the proverb actually means
Sugar, sweetens best when it entirely disappears in water. Likewise, people that make nothing of themselves, are best able to help others. 
(Rabbi Yitzchak of Vorki)

translated to Hebrew
סוכר, כשהוא נמס לגמרי בתוך המים, הוא הכי ממתק. כך אדם, כשעושה מעצמו כלום, יכול לעזור לזולת הכי הרבה (ר' יצחק מוורקא)
