Who cares if a crow is male or female?
Who travels for love finds a thousand miles not longer than one.
Wine is water adulterated by foolish talk.
Wisdom and virtue are like the two wheels of a cart.
Wisdom is lost in a fat man's body.
Without women there is no day and no night.
Women's quarrels cause the men's wars.
Yesterday's flowers are today's dreams.
You can see heaven through the eye of the needle.
You can worship a sardine's head if you believe in it.
You can't see the whole sky through a bamboo pole.
You can't see the whole sky through a bamboo tube.
You can't straighten a snake by putting it in a bamboo cane.
You don't have to die: heaven and hell are in this world too.
You have to bow a few times before you can stand upright.
You should climb Mount Fujiyama once in your life. Climb it twice and you're a fool.
You warm up something for ten days and it goes cold in one.
You will never learn enough looking for only the good things in life; you will always be a pupil.
You won't get sick if you have plenty of work.
Your years will still remain the same whether you laugh or cry.
The path of duty lies in what is near at hand, but men seek for it in what is remote.
