Those who gave thee a body, furnished it with weakness; but He who gave thee Soul, armed thee with resolution. Employ it, and thou art wise; be wise and thou art happy.
To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.
The lips of the wise are as the doors of a cabinet; no sooner are they opened, but treasures are poured out before thee.
Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.
