Sometimes you have to lose a battle to win a war
When God closes a window somewhere he opens a door.
I can kill two birds with one stone but if I am too bitter and too full of hate
I will cut off my nose to spite my face.
Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all,
But if I take myself too seriously pride is bound to come before a fall
These pearls of wisdom, this sacred prose
Demonstrates and shows
How the old folk prepared the new
Passing their sacred knowledge on to me and you.
