Stop being Modest. Modesty doesn’t pay – the world is very cruel and people will take advantage of you, they’ll deny you the credit due.
Experience teaches a man, knowledge broadens his vision but it is divine peace that brings him closer to the truths of life.
“Let not the next step be in haste, for spring is not for a day"
A woman is like your shadow.
Follow her and she will fly from you.
Fly from her and she will follow you.
It is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all.
Incompetence always invites contempt.
Who will not take the offensive and derive pleasure from striking a blow when there is no fear of retaliation?
Those who are capable always emerge victorious.
Real love means being happy in the happiness of the beloved.
The element of desire is not the same in everybody’s love.
When two people are so greatly attracted, they have either to belong to each other wholly or to part
Sin only exists when there is consciousness of sin.
Some friends are like sea waves;
They advance in full confidence,
Then receed as suddenly.
Cosmetics can enhance a woman’s loveliness;
But cannot create it.
Sometimes they can give the illusion of beauty;
Only it is not lasting.
When a man and a woman are in love,
Nothing they do in the privacy of their own home is ever wrong. - Harrold Robbins in ‘The Carpetbaggers”
If you enter a zone of light,
You have to drag your shadow along.
Women are temptresses;
Men plunge into the pool of their charm and drown.
Lilies bloom on the surface,
But down below there is nothing but rotting mud.
The bigger the bamboo, the hollower it is inside.
Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned.
