Magha Quotes

The foolish undertake a trifling act, and soon desist, discouraged; wise men engage in mighty works, and persevere.

A good man’s intellect is piercing, yet inflicts no wound; his actions are deliberate, yet bold; his heart is warm, but never burns; his speech is eloquent, yet ever true.

That energy which veils itself in mildness is most effective of its object.

Weak men gain their object when allied with strong associates: the brook reaches the ocean by the river’s aid.
