	I fell, I got up
	I lost and I found...
	Of all certain things
	The most certain is doubt.
	Have pity on all,
	But love none,
	Don't tempt men,
	live a humble life;
	There is no other path
	to a happy life.
	We are like feathers
	Fortune a strong wind
	That blows and snatches
	at its whim.
	To be on the safe side
	Avoid a dog's front end
	And a mule's rear end.
	Teaching consists in opening the mind;
	The mouth will open by itself.
