: : You might wish to include this proverb, meaning of which is not clear
: : Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith
: Nice one.
I find the meaning clear enough. The writer preferred a vegetarian meal with loved ones over a roast from a grain-fattened animal where enmity prevailed at the table.
