      - [Thought]

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
      - [Friends]

If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.
      - [Motive]

If there be one righteous person, the rain falls for his sake.
      - [Rain]

Let a man avoid evil deeds as a man who loves life avoids poison.
      - [Evil]

Let no man think lightly of good, saying in his heart, It will not benefit me. Even by the falling of waterdrops a water-pot is filled; the wise man becomes full of good, even if he gather it little by little.
      - [Goodness]

Like a beautiful flower full of color, but without scent, are the fine but fruitless words of him who does not act accordingly.

To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance.
      - [Unselfishness]

When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.
