Tha mair ye dae

The mair ye dae the less ye’r thocht o.

A common complaint of women down through the ages, who feel that their efforts are not appreciated.  

This saying has affinities with, ‘The willing horse gets the heavy load’ (English), or the Scots version which is, The wullin naig is aye wrocht ti daith.

A brave or foolish man could respone with the oul truism
'Aye but thur's nae lack in love' (good luck).
