Ear of Rice and Japanese Proverb;

*Rice grow ripe in Autumn*
         The boughs that bear most hang lowest.
                         minoruhodo koubeo tareru inahokana
This proverb must have derived from Japanese rice eating culture.
The interpretation I have found from pc.  "As berries ripen drooping ears, humans also deepens learning and virtue, humility."   I think it is a reference to modesty and humility being virtue, and the virtue applies to those who are the most unassuming, the least pretentious.  I still have a lot to learn :-)
