There is an equally valid proverb which is: People in Grass houses shouln't stow thrones. This was first aired on a British comedy radio programme and alludes to that fact that thrones - being heavy and often carved from marble or cast in gold - cannot be easily, or safely, stowed in the roofs of grass houses.
