***************

Respect yourself, but
do not be envious of
your accomplishments

***************

The dignity of
favorable beginnings
is lost on an ape

***************

Beautiful women
depend on the applause of
brute expectations

***************

Real friendship is
a great falsifier, as
obscure as nothing

***************

When desire gilds your
happiness, never contend
with integrity

***************

One must pass through the
peacock’s mirror to find the
limits of fashion

***************

Among gamblers and
fools, the burden of time slinks
like a mad serpent

***************

A reputation
is always built on the sweet
touch of bad manners

***************

Opportunity
is the art of affecting
a sage ignorance

Hexagram 41: Sun—Decrease

The benefits of
loss: Genkichi uplinked to
Jeong with guilt-free

accompanying
profits. A true GUI
is a flexible

GUI. It’s like
saying: a gentleman’s chéng
fèn zhì yù is a

Corfu of common
discretion. Why levy a
fierce Trent? Florida

is three suspects and
a line of damaged accounts,
but folks will profit.

The loss of disease
will save ten friends and frustrate
contrary people.

Invigorating
is the turtle who points to
no official home.
