To know how to do it is simple, the difficulty is in doing it. a candle lights others and consumes itself. A tiger never returns to his prey he did not finish off. Judge not the horse by his saddle. Attack is the best defense. If you don’t scale the mountain, you can’t view the plain. The spirit goes on foot. Great business is good; to sit and sip this glass is better. A fool judges people by the presents they give him. The more souls the more gossip.
