Every mother thinks it’s for her own child the sun rises.

What the child sees, the child does.
What the child does, the child is.
The child that’s left to himself will put his mother to shame.

You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.

Twenty years a child; twenty years running wild;
Twenty years a mature man; and after that, praying.

Don’t tell secrets to the children of your relatives.

Your son is your son until he takes a wife,
But your daughter is your daughter all your life.
