A man who has scalded his lips on milk will blow on his ice cream.


Destiny caresses the few and molests the many.


Listening requires more intelligence than speaking.


Love and blindness are companions.


He who would be loved must begin by loving.


The man who conceals his pain will never find a cure.


Stretch your feet only as your blanket allows.


A sword does not cut its own sheath.


Gold button cannot belong to a torn coat.


The mind is for seeing, the heart is for hearing.


The heart is like a glass castle, it cannot be mended.
