Fire will not put out fire. Anger is not appeased by anger.
Don't send an old man to buy a donkey, nor a young man to woo a wife.
The mouth of fools pours out foolishness.
A long-tailed animal doesn't jump over fire.
It's the still waters that are inhibited by devils.
Who could live without hope?
Through dangers to distinction.
One measures the towers by their shadows and great people by those who envy them.
Whilst the nurse suckles, we love her; when she is of no further use, she is forgotten.
