Don’t brag about tomorrow, since you don’t know what the day will bring.
Let someone else praise you, not your own mouth— a stranger, not your own lips.
A stone is heavy and sand is weighty, but the resentment caused by a fool is even heavier.
Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood, but jealousy is even more dangerous.
An open rebuke is better than hidden love!
Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.
