Your greatness is measured by your kindness ,
your education and intellect by your modesty,
your ignorance is betrayed by your suspicions and prejudices,
your real calibrenis measured by the consideration and tolerance you have for others.
You came into the world with nothing
Anything you get after that is sheer profit.
Write down the advice of him who loves you,
though you like it not present
you will need it later.
Who teaches me for a day is my father for a lifetime.
When something has happened,
do not talk about it,
it is hard to collect spilled water.
When glory comes, loss of memory follows.
When everything seems to be going dead wrong,
take a good look and see if you are not headed in the wrong direction.
