They will feel so, not as a ground on which they may gain the...

עמוד 55 - ... in which the rice has been cleaned, and ask them to wash with it ; if their feet be dirty, they should prepare hot water, and ask them to wash them with it. Elders in serving their youngers, and the low in serving the noble, should all observe these rules. 12. The men should not speak of what belongs to the inside (of the house), nor the women of what belongs to the outside. Except at sacrifices and funeral rites, they should not hand vessels to one another. In all other cases when they have...
עמוד 36 - ... luxuries that appeal to the palate is too slight, the call for sustaining food is too imperious, to withdraw much land from its main business, which is to grow rice and beans and wheat and garlic to keep the people alive. To win new plots for tillage, human sweat has been poured out like water.
