Hi Rick, how is life treating you these days?
Proverb (originated in Croatian dialect, Komiza, place where I was born) has several meanings:
a) deals with honesty/dishonesty and when greed overtake person’s character, “when greed is in front of your character, you will never change”,
b) deal with respect/disrespect, “respect your opponents as you respect your friends”, so to show that you can deal with your own ego,
It is hard to translate it directly to English (not that my English is good, anyway)!
