At number six, this week’s saying is-

The one who has no brother is naked on the back.

Quoth the hero Grettir, as he lay wounded in battle.  Taking the hint, his brother Illugi immediately covered Grettir’s back with his own shield, defending Grettir for the remainder of the skirmish.

I don’t have a brother – hope my little sis would do the same though!
