This book is full of Japanese proverbs. One example is "Even monkeys fall from trees". Maybe you can guess the meaning. Yes, it means that people who are experts aren't free from occasional failures. So you can use this proverb to give an excuse when you have made a mistake in a field you are good at.
How about "Crow's bathing"? Mothers may say to their children "How can you finish a bath so quickly! You mustn't have washed yourself enough. That's crow's bathing!" They say that crows take a bath very quickly and Japanese usually use it in a negative sense. In the first place, however, have anybody ever seen crows are taking a bath?
The following proverb may be difficult to imagine the meaning of. "It doesn't hurt you to put a baby of yours into one of your eyes". You think that it must hurt you, don't you? What you think is the meaning? Take a look at this book and learn the meaning.
