Do not treat your loved one like a swinging door: you are fond of it but you push it back and forth. Life is a shadow and a mist; it passes quickly by, and is no more. Sadness is a valuable treasure — only discovered in people you love. The dying person cannot wait for the shroud to be woven. Those who know how to swim are the ones who sink. Govern a country as you would roast a crocodile on a spit. From all the fish in the pot you can only make one soup. Debts make the thief. To love the law is to lose money.
