Let someone else acknowledge your virtues.
Persist as resolutely as you persist in eating.
Many stars cannot be concealed by a small cloud.
Only the foolish visit the land of the cannibals.
The block of wood should not dictate to the carver.
The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.
A brave man who climbs trees is food for their roots.
A bird which eats berries can be caught, but not a bird that eats wood.
The more you ask how much longer it will take, the longer the journey seems.
In a very old tree, you may be certain that the sapwood is on the outside, while the heartwood is in the middle.
