Three things it is best to avoid a strange dog, a flood, and a man who thinks he is wise.
Reason is the wise man's guide, example the fools.
Adversity and loss make a man wise
Three things give us hardy strength: sleeping on hairy mattresses, breathing cold air, and eating dry food
The best candle is understanding
Your hand is never the worse for doing its own work
Perfect love sometimes does not come until grandchildren are born
Without perseverance talent is a barren bed
If you would get ahead, be a bridge
People aren't good unless others are made better by them
He understands badly who listens badly
