for the Young, Work is for the Old
Turkey, we have a valuable idiom that is "Water is
for the young, the work is for the old."

about life to young children and to help
them in their difficult positions; they

first. For example, when two people are thirsty,

for countries. Because by these values, the
communities will stand forever; it will be hard to
destroy these kinds of countries which obey their
values and customs.
