Proverbs from the Chinese XII

"Never ponder a heave unless it is valid."
One more of those puzzling Chinese proverbs, but possibly just another bad translation. Anyway, it nicely contains today's three words from 3WW: heave, ponder and valid.

Somehow this leaves me pondering ...

Was it meant to say "Never heave a ponder unless ..."?

But even that does not seem particularly valid.

Not out-teresting; quite the reverse in fact.

I never have time to ponder my heaves, they just happen.
