One of my favorite Brazilian proverbs is “You cannot make an omelet without breaking eggs”. It’s often said when you have to do two things at the same time and have to give up one. It means that you do not achieve an objective, if don't make efforts and sacrifices. I like this proverb about the omelet because it makes us think before doing something. The thing is everything in life has a risk you have to take, a choice. It’s necessary to be cautious and wise in our choices, so that we won’t regret later.
