Chinese Proverbs

The Chinese are famous for their wisdom. Here are some of my favorite Chinese proverbs:
  •  People who confine themselves to one geographic location develop prejudices.
  •  When you drink too much, truth tumbles out.
  • The people who know most say they know least.
  • Once a word is spoken, few horses cannot drag it back.
  • Heroes are made by the times.
  • The more laws made, the more criminals created.
  • The truth is often disguised as jest.
  •  Few people love virtue as much as beauty.
  • Watch your words and your deeds; your words will be quoted, and your deeds will be copied.
