Somewhere over the last year I encountered a proverb or
saying that expressed the following idea: When in John's house,
dont' rave about Jim's talents/possessions/activities lest John
feel that you are obliquely slighting him (John) by not saying the
same of him. Does anyone know a proverb to that effect? I think
it was an English language proverb, but could have been Slavic or
Semitic. Thanks for you consideration!
All the best, Don.
