It is no use to blame the looking glass if your face is awry.
Countless as the sands of the sea are human passions.
You can’t imagine how stupid the whole world has grown nowadays.
Everywhere across whatever sorrows of which our life is woven, some radiant joy will gaily flash past.
Let me warn you, if you start chasing after views, you’ll be left without bread and without views.
We ought to thank God for that. Yes, the man who tills the land is more worthy of respect than any.
What are you laughing at? You are laughing at yourselves!
Always think of what is useful and not what is beautiful. Beauty will come of its own accord.
