A full cup must be carried steadily.
He that plants trees loves others besides himself.
Use soft words and hard arguments.
Don't fall before you're pushed.
Write down the advice of him who loves you, though you like it not at present.
Proportion your expenses to what you have, not what you expect.
A man is as old as he feels himself to be.
Give neither advice nor salt, until you are asked for it.
A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner.
A stumble may prevent a fall.
The absent are always in the wrong.
If you want to be happy for a year, plant a garden;if you want to be happy for life, plant a tree.
Danger and delight grow on one stalk.
