A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
If you are truthful you will have as much gold as you want.
One minute of patience, ten years of peace
A truth spoken before its time is dangerous.
A heart that loves is always young.
The excess of virtue is a vice.
A civilization flourishes when people plant trees under which they will never sit.
Think with the wise, but talk with the vulgar.
Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.
As long as you have the blessing of your parents it does not matter even if you live in the mountains.
A miser and a liar bargain quickly.
Either dance well or quit the ballroom.
But mortal bliss will never come sincere; Pleasure may lead, but grief blow brings up the rear
Poor in my youth, and in life's later scenes - Rich to no end, I curse my natal hour, Who naught enjoyed while young, denied the means; And naught when old enjoyed, denied the power
The beginning is the half of every action.
