The injury of prodigality leads to this, that he who will not economize will have to agonize.
Confucius (c. 551 - c. 479 BC)

A gentleman is ashamed to let his words outrun his deeds.
The gentleman prefers to be slow in word but diligent in action.
A good man will certainly also possess courage; but a brave man is not necessarily good.
To see what is right, and not do it, is want of courage, or of principle.
A gentleman considers what is right; The vulgar consider what will pay.
To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice.
He who is influenced neither by the soaking in of slander nor by the assault of denunciation may indeed be called enlightened.
Balance is the perfect state of still water. Let that be our model. It remains quiet within and is not disturbed on the surface.
First and foremost, be faithful to your superiors, keep all promises, refuse the friendship of all who are not like you; and if you have made a mistake, do not be afraid of admitting the fact and amending your ways.
