I am telling you to be a slow-speaking person.

Away with the world's opinion of you-it's always unsettled and divided.
See what daily exercise does for one.
The wise man then followed a simple way of life-which is hardly surprising when you consider how even in this modern age he seeks to be as little encumbered as he possibly can.
How much longer are you going to be a pupil? From now on do some teaching as well.
Be harsh with yourself at times.
Life is never incomplete if it is an honorable one. At whatever point you leave life, if you leave it in the right way, it is whole.
What's the good of dragging up sufferings which are over, of being unhappy now just because you were then.
To the person who does not know where he wants to go there is no favorable wind.
Let us fight the battle-retreat from the things that attract us and rouse ourselves to meet the things that actually attack us.
