* A little impatience will spoil great plans

* Even a hare will bite when it is cornered

* A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

* If you bow at all, bow low

* A smile will gain you ten more years of life

* A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song

* Behave toward everyone as if receiving a guest

* A fall into a ditch makes you wiser

* Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without one

* He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever

* An inch of time is an inch of gold but you can’t buy that inch of time with an inch of gold

* A closed mind is like a closed book , just a block of wood

* Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness

* A book holds a house of gold

* Talk does not cook rice

* Experience is a comb which nature gives us when we are bald

* Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still

* To know the road ahead, ask those coming back

* A needle is not sharp at both ends

* Distant water won’t help to put out a fire close at hand

* Small men think they are small, great men never know they are great

* Fool me once, shame on you , fool me twice, shame on me

* Want a thing long enough and you don’t

* Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking

* Teachers open the door, you enter by yourself

* I was angered for I had no shoes , then I met a man who had no feet

* Men trip not on mountains they trip on molehills

* Do not want others to know what you have done? Better not have done it anyways

* A man without a smiling face must not open shop

* It is not the knowing that is difficult, but the doing

* Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime

* Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere

* A bird can roost but on one branch, a mouse can drink not more than its fill from a river

* * *
