The biggest guru mantra is to never share your secrets with anyone, it can destroy you.
Test a servant when he has nothing to do, a relative in difficulty, a friend in adversity and a wife in misfortune.
There is some self interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self interest. This is a bitter truth.
It is better to die than to preserve life by incurring disgrace. The loss life causes only a moments grief, but disgrace brings grief everyday in one’s life.
A man is great by his deed, not by his birth
Books are as useful to a stupid person as a mirror is useful to a blind person.
The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
As a single withered tree, if set aflame can cause a whole forest to burn. So dies a rascal son can destroy a whole family
