aina on oksan ottajia, kun on kuusen kantajia

This Finnish phrase featured in Christopher J. Moore's In Other Words means:
"If there is someone to carry the fir tree, there will be no shortage of people willing to hold a branch to help."
I thought of it in Waldorf School chorus class today, when I was asking the kids yet again to remember to bring their notebooks and the teacher who helps me shared this odd story:
Two men were carrying a piano while a third man was sitting on it. They told him: "we don't mind giving you a ride, but please don't drag your feet."
