Romanian wisdom

New Septoes*, inspired by old Romanian wisdom



***

Whoever digs someone’s grave falls 
inside himself.

Wolves shed furs but never ethical codes.

Great people make any place worth living.

A person’s fear is another one’s strength.

Present your friends, so I know you.

Small obstacles can overturn a winning chariot.

Wisdom is about experience, perception and humility.

***


Septoes: literary genre invented by Edward de Bono i.e. to tell something wise in seven words
