If you do not fear death, there’s always delusion.
Instead of loving your enemies, do not squat with your spurs on.
If you are squeamish, set a good example.
If you can’t change your fate, narrow your focus.
When you get to the end of your rope, step to the music you hear.
If two friends ask you to be judge in a dispute, never answer a hypothetical question.
When a door is hard to open, never assume.
If people don’t occasionally walk away from you shaking their heads, take a moment to meditate.
In whatever you are doing, answer the easy questions first.
If you’re about to get into a fight, sometimes it is wise to withdraw and regroup.
In all forms of strategy, don’t count on miracles.
Take time to deliberate, but the fiddle is judged by its tune.
