Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.
Good things, many devils.
At the first cup man drinks wine, at the second wine drinks wine, at the third wine drinks man.

Beaten with his own rod.

Do good things quickly.
He is rich who knows when he has enough.
Each day you can admire the moon, the snow and the flowers.
He flies into the flame, the summer insect.

Even when months and days are long, life is short.
Eat before falling in love.
Children grow up, with or without parents.
Disgrace is like the grain of a tree trunk — time makes it bigger instead of erasing it.
