  He who tells the failings of others to you will be ready to tell your failings to others.  6
  If the time don’t suit you, suit yourself to the time.  7
  It is not with saying, “Honey, honey,” that sweetness comes into the mouth.  8
  It matters less to a man where he is born than where he can live.  9
  Man, forget not death, for death certainly forgets not thee.  10
  No road is long with good company.  11
  Patience is the key of Paradise.  12
