We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something, we are no longer free.
With money in your pocket, you are wise, and you are handsome, and you sing well too.
The beggar does more good for the giver than the giver does for the beggar.
Thought is a universe of freedom.
A wise man hears one word but understands two.
Do not make yourself so big. You're not so small.
The wise are grateful for a rebuke.
Worms eat you when you are dead; worries eat you when you’re alive.
Prayer without study is like a soul without a body.
Pride goes before ruin, arrogance, before failure.
He who loves discipline loves knowledge; stupid is the person who hates correction.
He who satisfies others shall himself be sated.
A gentle response allays wrath; a harsh word provokes anger.
One who has confidence in himself gains the confidence of others.
We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are.
Fear of misfortune is worse than misfortune.
