this week's proverbs
ווען מענטשן זאָלן האָבּן אַ דעה איבּער דער זון, וואָלט זי שוין לאַנג פינצטער געוואָרן

ven mentshn zoln hobn a dey'e iber di zun, vol zi shoyn lang fintster gevorn

the proverb actually means

translated to Hebrew
לוּ לאנושות היתה שליטה על השמש, היא היתה מזמן מחשיך

אז מ'וואָלט איינעם געלאָזט נעמען פון דער וועלט וואָס זײַן האַרץ גלוסט, וואָלט ער פאַר דעם צווייטן גאָרנישט איבּערגעלאָזט

az m'volt eynem gelozt nemen fun der velt vos zayn harts glust, volt er far dem tsveytn gornit ibergelozt

in English
if one would be allowed to take from this world anything his heart desires, he would not leave a thing for another

in Hebrew

לוּ היו מרשים לאדם לקחת מהעולם מה שלבו חפץ, הוא לא היה משאיר לשני כלום
