He who cannot light a fire knows nothing about love. Not all that shines is gold, nor all that glows is silver. Little is better than nothing. Happiness does not come from happiness itself, but from the journey towards achieving it. Better a bitter truth than a sweet lie. A tree is climbed from its base. After the rain, fine weather. One’s own help [is] the best help. All eggs should not be put in one basket. War does not determine who is right, only who is remaining. Even a small star shines in the dark. As we grow older our bad qualities make us younger. A barking dog does not bite. Who promises a lot, gives a little.
