XVII. Qualities

Napoleon Crossing the Alps(1800), by Jacques-Louis David

~

Ambition makes people diligent.

Nothing crave, nothing have.

Nothing seek, nothing find.

Seek what which may be found.

 ~

Necessity and opportunity may make a coward valiant.

Courage and resolution are the spirit and soul of virtue.

Courage and perseverance conquer all before them.

The weapon of the brave is his heart.

If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.

That which is well done is twice done.

Diligence makes an expert workman.

Where bees are, there is honey.

 ~

Do not forget little kindness,

And do not remember small faults.[1]

When you drink from the stream,

Remember the spring.

 ~

Health and gaiety foster beauty.

Health and wealth create beauty.

Health is great riches.

Health is better than wealth.


[1] Chinese proverb.
