11 “Silence is a true friend who never betrays.” “Respect yourself and others will respect you.” “You cannot open a book without learning something.” “What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others.” “Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others.” “When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on your own weak points.” “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” “The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.” “Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.” “It is not the failure of others to appreciate your abilities that should trouble you, but rather your failure to appreciate theirs.” “Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” “The man of wisdom is never of two minds; the man of benevolence never worries; the man of courage is never afraid.” “The way out is through the door. Why is it that no one will use this method?” “The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.” “Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change.”
