"Happiness, like despair and malaise, can be found in the sparrow's bush."

"To be pure in spirit, one must travel to the desert of his mind and clean all the rocks."

"When you sleep, be like the eagle who soars over the mountain, so that you never stop moving."

"This life is but a mirror to our dreams, through which we see the clarity of truth."

"Jealousy, like a bear, can only be killed through starvation."

"The sky's lightning bolts remind us not to be thieves in the image of a fox."

"Do not lust for your brother's wife; let her lust for you and stone her."

"The strongest tree in the countryside is like a stalk of grass compared to the power of the cricket that sings through the night."

"If you look into the face of your friends and see joy, look away as they wish to steal it from you always."

"To the simple man, perseverance is more important than luck. To the civilized man, there is only one option: to persevere with luck."

"Human misery is the donkey balm that mends the sheep's scars."
