Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth— a stranger, and not your own lips.
A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty, but a fool's provocation is heavier than both.
Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming, but who is able to stand before jealousy?
Better is open rebuke than hidden love.
Well meant are the wounds a friend inflicts, but profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
The sated appetite spurns honey, but to a ravenous appetite even the bitter is sweet.
