this week's proverb
דער מענטש דאגהט וועגן זײַנע טעג וואָס ווערן פאַרלאָרן (פון זיך אַליין), און דאגהט ניט וועגן די טעג וואָס ער בּרענגט אום (מיט די אייגענע הענט).

der mentsh dayget vegn zay'ne teg vos vern farlorn (fun zikh a'leyn) un dayget nit vegn di teg vos er brengt un (mit di eyge'ne hent)

the proverb actually means
A person worries about the days that go to waste is not concerned about the days he wastes

translated to Hebrew
האדם דואג על הימים שנאבדים (מעצמם) ואינו מוטרד על הימים שהוא מבזבז

אַ גוטע וואָך  

Chaim Werdyger
Bringing back the Yiddish language
