Though you possess prudence, old man, do not despise advice. When the eyes see nothing, the heart feels nothing. Half of an orange tastes just as sweet as a whole one. Speak whenever you must, hush whenever you can. A proverb is to speech what salt is to food. The wise man affirms little and doubt much. The leafiest tree doesn’t always have the juiciest fruit.
