��S ist besser mit Affen, mit Kater und B�ren,
als allzeit mit Ochsen und Eseln verkehren.�

(It is better with monkeys, tomcats and bears,
than to operate all the time with oxen and donkeys.)

Translated without the animal symbolism, the message of the saying is that: �It is better to be a drinker and contend with the hangovers than to work hard all the time.�
