Chinese thoughts championship :)

Always looking for new funny quotes, Don just told me this nice one : "Man with more than one clock never know what time it is" :>

Do you have your own chinese thoughts ? .. or do you know websites like this one :

Small correction...

Thibault -- It should read "more than one clock." More than "a" clock would usually be interpreted differently. [corrected, thx]

Chinese thoughts

Confucius could give answer to that, unfortunately Confucius not here at moment.

Kindness in heart better than gold in bank.

Truth like football, receive many kicks before reaching goal.

Politeness golden key that open many doors.

Any powder that kills flea is good powder.

Knowledge only gained through curiousity.

Man without relatives is man without trouble.

Sleep only escape from yesterday.

Do not challenge supernatural unless armed with sword of truth.

To destroy false prophet must first unmask him before eyes of believers.

When fear attack brain, tongue wave distress signal.

Drop of plain water on thirsty tongue more precious than gold in purse.

Thought at present like dog chasing own tail, getting noplace.

When money talk, few are deaf.

Humility only defense against rightful blame.

Luck happy combination of foolish accidents.

Alibi have habit of disappearing like hole in water.

Good fisherman, like clever merchant, know lure of bright colors.

Man without enemies like dog without fleas.

Front seldom tell truth, to know occupant of house always look in backyard.

One small wind can raise much dust.

Caution sometimes mother of suspicion. Suspicion often father of truth.
