Do not brag about tomorrow, because you do not know what another day may bring.
Praise should come from another person and not from your own mouth, from a stranger and not from your own lips.
A stone is heavy, and sand weighs a lot, but annoyance caused by a stubborn fool is heavier than both.
Anger is cruel, and fury is overwhelming, but who can survive jealousy?
Open criticism is better than unexpressed love.
Wounds made by a friend are intended to help, but an enemy's kisses are too much to bear.
One who is full despises honey, but to one who is hungry, even bitter food tastes sweet.
Like a bird wandering from its nest, so is a husband wandering from his home.
Perfume and incense make the heart glad, but the sweetness of a friend is a fragrant forest.
