If you are an anvil, be patient; If you are a hammer, strike hard.
Lay me on an anvil, O God.
Beat me and hammer me into a crowbar.
Let me pry loose old walls.
Let me lift and loosen old foundations.
A good anvil does not fear the hammer.
When many strike on an anvil, they must strike by measure.
One must be either anvil or hammer.
If the anvil is good, the work will be good.
The anvil is used to noise.
If you are the anvil, suffer; if you are the hammer, strike.
The anvil lasts longer than the hammer.
When you are an anvil, hold your still; When you are a hammer, strike your fill.
