Be upright in thy whole life; be content in all its changes;so shalt thou make thy profit out of all occurrences; so shall everything that happeneth unto thee be the source of praise
As a camel beareth labour, and heat, and hunger, and thirst, through deserts of sand, and fainteth not; so the fortitude of a man shall sustain him through all perils.
Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.
When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the lustre of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.
The lips of the wise are as the doors of a cabinet; no sooner are they opened, but treasures are poured out before thee.
