Worry can rob you of happiness.
A man who hides his hatred is a liar.
Some people spend their money freely and still grow richer. Others are cautious, and yet grow poorer. Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped.
When a fool is annoyed, he quickly lets it be known. Smart people will ignore an insult.
Smart people keep quiet about what they know, but stupid people advertise their ignorance.
Be careful what you say... A careless talker destroys himself.
If you don't punish your son, you don't love him. If you do love him, you will correct him.
If you stay calm, you are wise, but if you have a hot temper, you only show how stupid you are.
It is better to be patient than powerful. It is better to win control over yourself than over whole cities.
Being cheerful keeps you healthy. It is slow death to be gloomy all the time.
A fool does not care whether he understands a thing or not; all he wants to do is show how smart he is.
Discipline your children while they are young enough to learn. If you don't, you are helping them destroy themselves.
What you get by dishonesty you may enjoy like the finest food, but sooner or later it will be like a mouthful of sand.
Be kind and honest and you will live a long life; others will respect you and treat you fairly.
Righteous people are sure of themselves; wicked have to pretend as best they can.
Poor people are the rich man's slaves. Borrow money and you are the lender's slave.
Be generous and share your food with the poor. You will be blessed for it.
Be wise enough not to wear yourself out trying to get rich. Your money can be gone in a flash, as if it had grown wings and flown away like an eagle.
No matter how often an honest man falls, he always gets up again.
Don't let evil people worry you; don't be envious of them. A wicked person has no future - nothing to look forward to.
An honest answer is a sign of a true friendship.
Curses can not hurt you unless you deserve them.
If you answer a silly question, you are just as silly as the person who asked it. Give a silly answer to a silly question, and the one who asked it will realize that he's not as smart as he thinks.
A fool doing some stupid thing a second time is like a dog going back to its vomit.
Getting involved in an argument that is none of your business is like going down the street and grabbing a dog by its ears.
You have to hate someone to want to hurt him with lies. Insincere talk brings nothing but ruin.
Better to correct someone openly than to let him think you don't care for him at all.
Correct someone, and afterwards he will appreciate it more than flattery.
Let other people praise you - even strangers; never do it yourself.
It is your own face that you see reflected in the water, and it is your own self that you see reflected in your heart.
Human desires are like the world of the dead - there is always room for more.
Wicked run when no one is chasing them, but an honest person is as brave as a lion.
Be honest and you will be safe. If you are dishonest, you will suddenly fall.
Honest people will lead a full, happy life. But if you are in a hurry to get rich, you are going to be punished.
Arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected.
