If the world backs the cockroach, it will kill the hen.

 

Meaning:

In life, backing goes a long way in changing a life. We all know that there is no way a cockroach would defeat a hen in a fight, but with backups, it is possible. This proverb emphasises that good backing often makes the difference in all situation. A child trying to achieve something remarkably large would someday take charge, not when he or she is without backups, words of encouragement, guidelines, principles and a whole lot from his parents or guide.
