Landsknecht with Saying”

“So einer nur am Glase nippt, kann es ihm nicht gedeihen.
Hingegen wer da kräftig trinkt, der wird es nieht bereuen!”

(He who only takes a nip from the glass will not profit from it.
However, he who drinks heartily will never be sorry!)

A Landsknecht was a feudal serf used for military purposes by his master. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.
