Tibetan Proverbs (13)

Words are mere bubbles of water, but deeds are drops of gold.

The meek sheep should not try to imitate a furious bull.

The goal will not be reached if the right distance not be travelled.

There is no hope of fruit from a tree
which has been robbed of its flowers by the frost.

If the heart be stout, a mouse can lift an elephant.

Despise your own life, and you are master of the lives of others.

Gossip is the scum of water, action is the drop of gold.

Gods, devils and men are alike in actions and thoughts.

Even the nibbling rabbit can gorge itself to death.

To get milk and eggs you must not frighten the cow and hen.

There is so sin so great as killing.

Words are mere bubbles of water,
but deeds are drops of gold.

It is no use trying to tug the glacier backwards.
