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