So called pleasures, when they go beyond a certain limit, are but punishments.

What difference does it make, after all, what your position in life is if you dislike it yourself?
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.
A consciousness of wrongdoing is the first step to salvation...you have to catch yourself doing it before you can correct it.
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.
