~ Mansions in the Mountain by Tung Yuan
- Present to the eye, present to the mind.
- Misfortune comes to all men and most women.
- Misfortune is not that which can be avoided, but that which cannot.
- Poor by condition, rich by ambition.
- When a man is angry, he cannot be in the right.
- Sin is the root of sorrow.
- Pretty face, poor fate.
- Shame fades in the morning, but debts remain from day to day.
- Preserve the old, but know the new.
- When you go to buy, don’t show your silver.
- Keep company with good men, and good men you’ll imitate; keep company with beggars, and sleep outside some gate.
- Never be boastful; someone may pass who knew you as a child.
- Men whose consciences are clear, of a knock at midnight have no fear.
- Though stone were changed to gold, the heart of man would not be satisfied.
