Note: An English language saying which expresses a similar thought would be "possession is nine-tenths of the law". When ownership is disputed, he or she who has possession will enjoy the benefits of the property.The other claimants can only comfort themselves with dreams of dispossessing their rivals and claiming the prize for themselves. Everyone wants to be "king of the hill", even if for just a fleeting moment.
