A cherry year, a merry year; a plum year, a dumb year. You come with a cat and call it a rabbit. A man’s wealth may be superior to him. The elephant will reach to the roof of the house. It is the pot that boils but the dish that gets the credit. If everyone is going to dance, who, then, would watch? The heart of a wise man lies quiet like clear water. A building of sand falls as you build it. She is like a road — pretty, but crooked. One father can feed seven children, but seven children cannot feed one father. The flood takes him in, and the ebb takes him out. Knowledge is better than riches. Thought is free. Beauty is an empty calabash.
