Accomplishment of purpose is better than making a profit. Abundance will make cotton pull a stone. A woman who has not been twice married cannot know what a perfect marriage is. A wealthy man will always have followers. A tree is known by its fruit. A tree is best measured when it’s down. A tree does not move unless there is wind. A traveller to distant places should make no enemies. A smiling face dispels unhappiness. A rat is not born a rabbit. A pig that is used to wallowing in the mud looks for a clean person to rub against. A person is a guest for one or two days, but becomes an intruder on the third. A person always breaking off from work never finishes anything. A mother is gold, a father is a mirror. A man does not wander far from where his corn is roasting. A hunter who has only one arrow does not shoot with careless aim. A friendly person is never a good-for-nothing. A fowl does not forget where it lays its eggs.
