Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
A hand that is ready to hit may cause you great trouble.
A house full of people is a house full of different points of view.
A warrior dies in battle; a mountain climber on the rocks, but a farmer dies of old age.
Be quick to follow up an advantage.
Boast during the day; be humble at night.
Don't lean on your fellow men -- theirs is an ever moving support.
Even food can attack.
Hold on tight to the words of your ancestors.
In peace be faithful; in war be valiant.
In this world I greet my oldest survivor -- the earth.
Let someone else sing your praise.
Let us hurry and finish up the food; when visitors arrive, the meal will be over.
Never spend time with people who don't respect you.
Old canoes can be restored, but youth and beauty cannot.
Only the foolish visit the land of the cannibals.
Persist as resolutely as you persist in eating.
The block of wood should not dictate to the carver.
The land is a mother that never dies.
The more you ask how much longer it will take, the longer the journey will seem.
The prudent embark when the sea is calm -- the rash when it's stormy.
