When your son is young, discipline him; when he grows older, be a brother to him. Let trouble (evil) alone, and trouble will let you alone. Exert effort, you shall be rewarded. (tire yourself out for the sake of something and you shall get it.) When the wolf comes for the sheep, the dog goes to defecate. An intelligent deaf-mute is better than an ignorant person who can speak. If you conduct yourself properly, fear no one. The last resort is the hot rod. Towards the end of the night you shall hear shrill cries. Have faith in a stone and you can will be healed. Farther than earth from heaven. The son of a son is dear, the son of a daughter a stranger. The son of your son is yours, the son of your daughter is not. A man with one plan (lit. intention) goes out (to execute it); a man with two plans becomes perplexed. Tire out your body, but not your mind. What luck! It is God-sent. (lit. It came, and God brought it.) (When) They came to shoe the horse of the sultan, the beetle (came along) and stuck out her foot. If your messenger tarries, expect good. If you come back from a journey, offer your family (something) though it be only a stone.
