The latecomer is valued as nothing.
We’re many rivers from the same water.
When you’re enjoying prosperity, be wary of adversity.
Your word is your bond.
Owning land like fighting a war.
Nobility is less esteemed when it lacks wealth.
The devil laughs when the poor donates to the rich.
The more you have, the more you want.
Take advice from the prudent and you never regret it.
Both water and fire need to be treated with respect.
A good old man is better than a bad young man.
A trusted friend is a priceless treasure.
A silent woman is a good woman.
When you lose friends, you go down many steps.
A man without money seems half sick.
Don’t make friends with monks and soldiers.
If you want to live to be old you need to start early.
During an epidemic doctors are happy.
Happy are those who are well born, but happier are those who have a good death.
Gold attracts a crowd.
