Proverbs from China
Heaven has a road, but no one travels it; Hell has no gate but men will dig to get there.
Great doubts deep wisdom. Small doubts little wisdom.
Even the highest towers begin at the ground.
Dig the well before you are thirsty.
He who cannot agree with his enemies is controlled by them.
