Hello, fellow followers of the 21 Ways. It seems I'm always catching up, but, once again (speaking of sayings) better late than never!

8-1-1 Metaphors/Sayings for Manga 5 Coins
A man and woman pray/bow at a small outdoor shirne with snow on the roof. There are snow-covered mountains in the background.

Hope (pray) for the best but expect the worst.
Cold hands, warm heart.
Bowing down to false idols.
Their clothes are old but never are they dirty. (Stevie Wonder, Living for the City)
The frost was cruel, when a poor man came is sight, gathering winter fuel. (Good King Wenceslas)
The Lord helps those who help themselves.


5s in Manga
Taking life too seriously.
In desperate straits.
Looking down.
(NOT looking on the bright side.)
Being on the wrong side of (something).
Every hand is against them.
Man without a country.
The mark of Cain.

5s in General
Change: The more things change, the more they stay the same.
The only thing certain is change.
The only thing certain is death and taxes.

Limitation: Nothing lasts forever.
This too shall pass.
The walls are closing in.
Who will lend a helping hand?

Loss: Goodbye to all that.
The only one you can depend on is yourself.
Life's a bitch. Then you die.

Coins in Manga and in General
Green grow the rushes-O. (All the Manga coins cards are very green.)
It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Can't buy me love!
The golden rule: He who has the gold makes the rules.
It's an ill wind that blows no good.
Money makes the world go around.
Money changes everything.
Easy come, easy go.

Nature/Earth aspect: All rites of pleasure are My rites.
Spring, when a young man's fancy turns to love.
Love in bloom.
Resting on the earth.
The earth accepts all.
Hope springs eternal.

8-1-3 The ones that work for 5 Coins
In desperate straits.
It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Money changes everything.
Hope springs eternal.

On to my chosen card, Manga 4 Wands.
