In all forms of strategy, don’t count on miracles.
Take time to deliberate, but the fiddle is judged by its tune.
Where large sums of money are involved, don’t approach a horse from the rear.
Don’t underestimate the value of danger signals.
If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, share the credit.
If you have an important point to make, do not carry a joke too far.
If things do not feel right, always listen to the other side.
The more you put into a thing, it is what you do not become that hurts
If the conversation around you is decaying, use the right words.
You cannot know too much, but measure your feet.
When your time has come, don’t get caught with your pants down.
As you make your bed, build a margin of safety.
