Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps the singing bird will come.
You can't clap with one hand only.
An ant may well destroy an entire dam.
It's better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help someone else.
Better a live beggar than a dead king.
Wake not a sleeping lion.
He who could foresee affairs three days in advance would be rich for thousands of years.
Man fools himself. He prays for a long life, and he fears an old age.
