Slander cannot destroy an honest man - when the flood recedes the rock is there
Quote by Chinese Proverbs
Only the man who crosses the river at night knows the value of the light...
Politeness wins the confidence of princes
He who sacrifices his conscience to ambition burns a picture to obtain the ashes
To encourage talent is to create it
The broad-minded see the truth in different religions; the narrow-minded see only the differences
With money you are a dragon; with no money, a worm
One joy shatters a hundred griefs
The saving man becomes the free man.
Learning is like rowing upstream; not to advance is to drop back
Gold is tested by fire, man by gold
Habits are cobwebs at first; cables at last
So long as a man is angry he cannot be in the right
The man who strikes first admits that his ideas have given out.
Everyone pushes a falling fence
If we don't change our direction we're likely to end up where we're headed.
A bride received into the home is like a horse that you have just bought;...
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days...
If your strength is small, don't carry heavy burdens. If your words are worthless, don't...
Men give away nothing so liberally as their advice.
Don't offer me advice; give me money.
