By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and Third, by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius (c. 551 - c. 479 BC)

The true gentleman does not preach what he practices till he has practiced what he preaches.
To see what is right and not to do it, is want of courage.
Worry not that no one knows of you; seek to be worth knowing.

In vain I have looked for a single man capable of seeing his own faults and bringing the charge home against himself.
He that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.
The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his first interest; success comes only later.
He who conquers himself is the mightiest warrior.
Silence is a friend who will never betray.
Sincerity and truth are the basis of every virtue.
