Yanggen maolek hao, maolek-ña yo';
yanggen tailaye hao, tailaye-ña yo'.

(If you are good, I am better;
if you are bad, I am worse.)

The saying is meant both as a comfort and a warning.

It basically means : If you are good to me, I will outdo you in returning the favor.  But if you cross me, you won't know what hit you.

Suffice it to say, I have seen this philosophy lived out concretely before my very eyes.
