Reap what you sow
To Christina this is particularly important because she has always felt like she does things without thinking. She describes this proverb as the way I get my dues meaning she uses this proverb to justify when things go wrong. Christinas Dad taught her this phrase, he is very wealthy and has reaped a lot in this life. She learns a lot from her father and considers his life an inspiration. When things dont go her way, she says, I just gotta try hard, I know I screwed up but Ill try again.
This folk proverb has been passed down to Christina like most proverbs arefrom word of mouth. This proverb means a lot to Christina because she works hard and desperately wants to succeed. Even though the tone in the proverb with words like reap makes it sound very fatalistic, the message is positive and one that Christina treasures.
Annotation: This quote also showed up in the popular novel Kite Runner written by Khaled Hosseini
