Teerhich (Proverb)

 Cousin Marigold just sent me a generic sounding proverb. She wanted me to "Serranoize" it. So, to comply with her request I first put my version into English:

Tell me, and I might remember
Show me, but I might forget
Include me, and it is truly ours forever

And, the Serrano:

Ney kuchii teer, mit nehun yawq
Neychii ayn, mitan omik shevek
Werhanich tach nyiiv, ame pat mumk chenyu perrax atahtamerav

Any of our students or friends may want to offer a better or different rendition. Feel free to.
