ILAM

"The small rough knot that spoils good work". He goes on to say " If your mother has no wisdom, how can you have wisdom?" " I married a beautiful woman, but I left her for she was diseased."

If a small imperfection spoils an otherwise good work, they call the obstruction a "knot", as in a string.
