Appearance can be deceiving. A wolf can disguise himself as a sheep. A good surgeon must have a hawk’s eye, a lion’s heart and a woman’s hand. The way of this world is to praise dead saints and persecute living ones. It is a fine thing to command, though it be only a herd of cattle. One nail raises another nail. By trying is how you will know. Don’t be like the shadow: a constant companion, yet not a comrade. Never say from that water I will never drink. Until the nail is hit, it doesn’t believe in the hammer. The rain that is going to fall doesn’t wet you. If fate throws a knife at you, there are two ways of catching it: by the blade or by the handle.
