Virtue is a jewel of great price.
Put not fire to flax.
The gossips fall out and tell each other truths.
Better half a loaf than none at all.
If being well bearded brings happiness. a he-goat must be happier than any of us.
There's a pinch of the madman in every great man.
Ten noes are better then one lie.
Those who arrive to the spring first, drink the purest water.
By poking at a bamboo thicket, one drives out a snake.
