    the quotation is :you reap what you sow. what that means you get back what you invest.like a farmer who sows the seeds,and waters them,and cares for them,one day he will reap a bountiful harvest.if you sow the seeds of love,then love will be returned.if you live with hate,you will be hated,if you help others,then in your time of need others will help you.take the christmas movie "its a wonderful life"george bailey spent his life helping others when no one else would,and when it looked like he would be thrown in jail when the money was lost the whole town came to help him and showered him with money...you see george bailey sowed the seeds of kindness and it was given back to him manytimes over.like karma,what you send out will be returned seven fold.i hope this helped.have a happy new year.

    I think that what you actually heard was 'You reap what you sow'. Its an allusion to farming, where, whatever seeds you sow will grow and will be reaped the following season as a crop. Therefore, if you are a good person and do kind things, you can expect the same treatment from others, however, the term is often used about a person who has not treated others very well, and is now getting his just rewards in the way that life is treatng hm now.

    You REAP what you Sow, (Ya get what ya give), if you REEK, go back outside, get some gum, some after shave, and don't "Whack" the Bong, in the bathroom, wait until lunch time for that.

    What you heard should be "You reap what you sow" famous idiom meaning you will harvest only the grains of the seed you have sown or planted. In other words " reaction depends on your action".

    The correct saying is: You reap what you sow. In other words... If you plant corn, you aren't gonna get pumpkins. So in life, whatever you do will have consequences. ex: If you have unprotected sex, you may get an STD. It is usually said in a negative context.

    I believe the phrase is you reap what you sow

    which is just saying you get what you plant

    (reaping is a farming term for harvesting, sow is a term for planting)

    "you reap what you sow"

    "sow" refers to tending one's garden and it's harvest.

    The expression refers to our karma, or like these sayings"we will get out of something relevant to what we put into it"., or" what goes around comes around". I think it is used more often when a comment is made about a person doing something lousy, or not doing something they should of and these causes have effects that reflect your actions. "it'll come back to bite you in the ***" , these cliche's refer to our karma. and the yield or fruits of your gardening labor will give you what you gave it, without nurture , effort and good care you'll not receive full benefits, of anything you do in life, school, jobs, relationships etc

    You reap what you sow, that is the quote. It means whatever you do, it will come back on you. You know, like karma, what goes up, must come down.

    The saying is "you reap what you sow" and it means that if you do good, it will come back to benefit you, also if you do bad, it will come back to bite you. In other words, you get what you deserve.

    I think thats the quotation you reap what you sow.

    That means, you will harvest what you have planted.In other words, when you plant a fruit tree today, off course you will harvest its fruits.If you work hard, then you'll get benefits someday.
