Ugliness with a good character
is better than beauty.
Unity is strength,
division is weakness.
What you give you get, ten times over.
When a needle falls into a deep well,
many people will look into the well,
but few will be ready to go down after it.
Where water is the boss
there the land must obey.
Wisdom does not come overnight.
You always learn a lot more when you lose
than when you win.
You are beautiful, but learn to work,
for you cannot eat your beauty.
You cannot build a house for last year’s summer.
You must attend to your business
with the vendor in the market,
and not to the noise of the market.
