Beauty holds more worth than gold.
Hardness shatters; strength endures.
A man without trust is a man without life.
On the heights, all paths are paved with daggers.
The only thing sadder than a battle won is a battle lost.
Death is as light as a feather; duty as heavy as a mountain.
Life is lighter than a feather, duty heavier than a mountain.
Duty is heavier than a mountain, death lighter than a feather.
There are no clear paths. Only pitfalls and tripwires and darkness.
Hammer the iron that lies on your anvil instead of daydreaming about working silver.
