Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
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 can stand before jealousy?
Better is open rebuke than hidden love.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
He who is sated loathes honey, but to one who is hungry everything bitter is sweet.
