I recall an expression that was told to me a while back (in Greek but I
can't recall it well enough here to reproduce it at all). I was hoping
someone has heard it before and knows a thing or two about its origin or
significance (beyond the obvious perhaps):

'you can't sell your grandfather's land or else you'll be less than your
word'

Thanks and kalo kalokairi everyone,
James Verinis
