Голод - не тётка

Голод - не тётка (Russian) — (Golod - nye tyotka), Hunger - is not an aunt.
"Famine is not an aunt, she will not run away to the forest", is the original expression in full. There were very difficult times in Russian history with starvation. This expression means that you will get no special mercy (as you might from those close to you) in difficult times.
