Death does not notify of coming. 

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.
