„Averdženo tut šaj del goďi, averdženo tut šaj del drom, no manušes tutar mušines te kerel ča tu jekh.“ (Someone can advise you, someone can guide you, but you have to make a person out of yourself on your own.)
This is one of the favourite proverbs that Roman often says to colleagues, friends, or his son.
