Friendship of the bad is like having a tumor in the body

Never lose hope in the hour of adversity. Dark clouds bring rain and will soon usher in sunshine.

The one quality that we should practice and develop is contentment.

True friends will never try to please us with words, which are not true.

Stay away from gossipmongers because they will not spare you too.

Friendship of the bad is like having a tumor in the body.

Thirst for wealth can never be quenched.

Wealth earned through wrong means will only bring trouble.
Trials and tribulations polish and smoothen our lives.
