A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.
Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other and greater ones invariably slink in after it.
The path to greatness is along with others.
One deceit needs many others, and so the whole house is built in the air and must soon come to the ground.
Always leave something to wish for; otherwise you will be miserable from your very happiness.
It is better to sleep on things beforehand than lie awake about them afterward.
Great ability develops and reveals itself increasingly with every new assignment.
