Proverbs 14:4; Proverbs 14:10; Proverbs 14:13 (New International Version)
Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty, but from the strength of an ox comes an abundant harvest.
Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.
Even in laughter the heart may ache, and joy may end in grief.
