An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
To refrain from evil and from strong drink and to be always, steadfast in virtue; this is the good luck.
When one feels no shame in telling a deliberate lie, there is no evil, I tell you, he will not do.
