Dear Forum Users,

One of my friends wants a tattoo and wants to have it in English. The message would be something like 'when sisters unite/join forces, mountains turn to diamonds'.

Could anyone please give me grammatically correct, good-sounding suggestions like:

1. When sisters unite, mountains turn into/become diamonds.
2. ...

Thank you very much.

Csika

I don't find the idea of mountains turning into diamonds very natural at all. What picture is she trying to put into the minds of the reader?

Is it a translation? It doesn't sound natural to me.
