A careless person will be taken by surprise by his watchful enemy. Blessed is the moon; it goes but it comes back again. The mat is warm. Having foolishly got into trouble he is asking for help. Gather the breadfruit from the farthest branches first. Like a fish, one should look for a hole in the net. The hand strikes the eye. The stones and the earth weep. The way to authority is through service. If at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again. Catch the bird and watch the breakers. Sit and wait for the good chestnuts.
