Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
Enemies' promises were made to be broken

Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
United we stand; divided we fall
Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
