    Smile One line facebook status translation

    Hi everyone,

    My girlfriend has posted this on her facebook, and I wonder if you can help me understanding this:
    "Cria cuervos y te sacaran los ojos... se les olvido anadir "y todo lo posible, incluyendo tus cuentas de banco". Oye, hay que modernizar"

    Is it a proverb? What does it mean? Many thanks!

    it means " raise ravens and they will take your eyes off... and they forgot to add " and take you out as much as possible" even the money from your bank account. Listen Let's get updated

    Yes, it is a proverb. it means "give somebody you love everything, such love, affection, even money and then they will betray you.

    In a lay man word, she is saying that "she has become so practical, that the love and affection she use to feel, is of now connected with the bank accounts.

    I have to agree diegonel. Cria cuervos y te sacaran los ojos literally means that if you raise ravens or crows they will scratch out or take out your eyes...and (added by the writer)...everything else possible, including your money.

    To me that means, as diegonel says, if you give somebody everything and they will take all you have.
