1.A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.
2.There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.
3.Once you start working on something, don’t be afraid of failure and don’t abandon it. People who work sincerely are the happiest.
4.Treat your kid like a darling only for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends.
5.A man is great by deeds, not by birth. Your work will speak for you than anything else.
