Chinese proverbs are great, may I bore you with a real one?<br><br><br><br>
"If you behave honestly and kindly during the day, you won't be scared that ghost will knock at you door at night"<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I felt stupid and left out of Tame's thread. But no, I am not blame anybody for the "joke". You might just don't understand our feeling because we come from different backgrounds and cultural experiences. But please, this kind of jokes really hurt<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"> , can you appreciate? There are SOOOOO many ways to entertain people, why do you have to pick this kind of jokes? Why?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Flowing water never goes bad.<br><br><br><br>
Flies never visit an egg that has no crack.<br><br><br><br>
An inch of time is an inch of gold, but you can't buy that inch of time with an inch of gold.<br><br><br><br>
It is easy to dodge a spear that comes in front of you but hard to keep harms away from an arrow shot from behind.<br><br><br><br>
We have a lot of to learn from the wisdom shown in the Chinese Proverbs.<br><br><br><br>
Much Respect!

Freemouse, That proverb is a good one for all of us to remember, in the little decisions we make day to day, as well as with big matters.

This is one of my favorite proverbs,<br><br><br><br><i>"Distant water won't help to put out a fire close at hand."</i><br><br><br><br>
I think it has strong connotations with regards to people suffering in the underdeveloped areas of the world.

This isn't a Chinese proverb, but I like it:<br><br><br><br><i><b>If a man loudly blesses his neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse.</b></i>

I agree about friends... that's why there will be more friends than relatives at my wedding... much to my father's dismay...

This is an Ethiopian proverb:<br><br><br><br>
When Spiders unite, they can tie down a lion<br><br><br><br>
I thought that was pretty cool.
