The friends of our friends are our friends.
Nobody is born wise.
Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.
Hold a true friend with both hands.
Wealth diminishes with usage; learning increases with use.
Beautiful discourse is rarer than emerald, yet it can be found among the servant girls at the grindstones.
Always being in a hurry does not prevent death, neither does going slowly prevent living.
Many hands make light work.
You learn how to cut down trees by cutting them down.
A leader who does not take advice is not a leader.
By labor comes wealth.
If there is character, ugliness becomes beauty; if there is none, beauty becomes ugliness.
