Ask the experienced rather than the learned.

Do not stand in a place of danger trusting in miracles.

Dwell not upon thy weariness, thy strength shall be according to the measure of thy desire.

Examine what is said, not him who speaks.

God sells knowledge for labor -- honor for risk.

He who has health has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.

It is good to know the truth, but it is better to speak of palm trees.

Live together like brothers and do business like strangers.

Never give advice in a crowd.

The sinning is the best part of repentance.

The whisper of a pretty girl can be heard further than the roar of a lion.

Wishing does not make a poor man rich.

Write the bad things that are done to you in sand, but write the good things on marble.

When what you want doesn't happen, learn to want what does.

The wound of words is worse than the wound of swords.

The wound that bleeds inwardly is the most dangerous.

Only the tent pitched by your own hands will stand.

Only three things in life are certain birth, death and change.
