You can stop a river, you cannot stop life.
A healthy person values belongings, a sick person values life.
Do not slam shut the door, which is still to be opened.
Even a rabbit’s skin can be a good dress for a year.
Had to wait till forty, can wait till forty one.
The dirt washes off with soap, a secret opens with an idle talk.
An obnoxious person thinks the skies are too low.
