Never spend time with people who don't respect you.
Many stars cannot be concealed by a small cloud.
Persist as resolutely as you persist in eating.
A house full of people is a house full of different points of view.
A brave man who climbs trees is food for their roots.
Only the foolish visit the land of the cannibals.
A bird which eats berries can be caught, but not a bird that eats wood.
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
He who stands, lives, he who sleeps, dies.
The block of wood should not dictate to the carver.
Let someone else acknowledge your virtues.
In a very old tree you may be certain that the sapwood is on the outside, while the heartwood is in the middle.
The more you ask how much longer it will take, the longer the journey seems.
