مِنَ الحِكمَةِ طاعَتُكَ لِمَن فَوقَكَ وإِجلالُك مَن فِي طَبَقَتِكَ وَ إِنصَافُكَ مَن دَونَكَ

It is wise to obey those who are above you, respect those who are in your rank, and be fair to those who are below you.

1501

إنَّ الدُّنيا كَالحَيَّةِ، لَيِّـنٌ مَسُّها، قاتِلٌ سَمُّها، فَأعْرِضْ عَمّا يُعْجِبُكَ فيها لِقِلَّةِ ما يَصْحَبُكَ مِنْها، وَ كُنْ آنَسَ ما تَكُونُ بِها أحْذَرَ ما تَكُونُ مِنْها

This world is like a snake: its skin is soft, but its venom is deadly. Therefore, avoid what you find attractive in it, because you will take little of it when you depart. And as much as it makes you happy, be vigilant.

1491

إنَّ الدُّنيا دارُ فَجائِعَ ، مَنْ عُوجِلَ فيها فُجِعَ بِنَفْسِهِ ، وَمَنْ اُمْهِلَ فيها فُجِعَ بِأحِبَّتِهِ

Earthly life is an existence of tragedies; he who is being hurried will lose his life, and he who is being delayed will lose his loved ones.
