The life of such a person alone is fruitful, who, while living, makes a multitude of people also live their lives.
Friendship with the good increase day by day as the sap of the sugarcane increases from top, joint to joint.
A wicked person put on three different colors like a chameleon. At first acts like a relative, next as a friend, and at the end turns out to be an enemy.
The wealth of a man who neither gives it away in charity nor enjoys it himself, does not actually belong to him, is like a scarecrow that protects the crop only for the sake of others.
