ENGLISH: LAUGHTER GIVES BIRTH TO DIFFICULTIES; DIFFICULTIES GIVE BIRTH TO LAUGHTER

The above proverb relates to tasks that are considered difficult and which are daunting to perform. However, once accomplished, one reaps the benefits of one’s endurance.

The overhead proverb is compared to a person who undertakes his/her work with diligence and endurance, resulting to effective completion of the exercise. That situation brings a satisfaction to the person as he/she reaps the fruits of his/her labour.

In addition, the proverb is likened to people who enjoy playing and reveling in excitement. However, in the same game, someone can get sick and start grieving. Thus, it said that, ‘laughter gives birth to difficulties; difficulties give birth to laughter.’

The proverb teaches people to exercise patience in doing their work. Hard work guarantees value in life. So, it is good to undertake those hard tasks with a lot of patience; that is a surety for a happy future.

In addition, such proverb cautions against engaging in dangerous games, because some games can bring about grief. It is advisable to play safe to avoid poor outcomes.
