Lesson #90:

(29 November 2018)

“You cannot get blood out of a stone.”

(English) Meaning:

  1. ’blood’ = ‘human feeling’; a ‘stone’ = ‘a hard-hearted person’. The reference is to ‘avarice’.
  2. To ask the help of a person who is so full of greed and lust for wealth that he feels no sympathy at all for others is as useless as trying to get blood out of a stone.
