A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.
Ability will never catch up with the demand for it.
An oppressive government is more to be feared than a tiger.
And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
Death and life have their determined appointments; riches and honors depend upon heaven.
Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.
