"Long ago" did not live long ago.
Away from the eye, away from the mind.
Care now, be cared for later.
Do good and throw it in the sea.
Do not drink from a well and throw a stone into it.
Don't just cross a river -- cross it bearing fire!
Every eye has its look.
Far from grave, no praying.
Go with the powerful and people will kneel before you.
If only I were a bird! Ah, but eating caterpillars?
If you feed the mouth, the eye becomes shy.
If you sit at a crossroads, you will get sick.
Nobody will plough the land except its cows.
Once deep pools, now a crossing place.
One hand can't clap.
One thumb alone does not kill a louse.
Only the soil knows when a young mouse is ill.
Pride is the mask of our sins.
Sell what you have bought while the dust is still on your shoes.
The empty gives way to the full.
The eye cannot rise above the eyebrow.
