Quips, Sayings, and Proverbs 4.6

Only an inventor knows how to borrow, and every man is or should be an inventor. [Emerson]
Who endures, can be privileged. It could also work the other way round. And it helps to stay first-class.
The inner voice of mature conscience has to be guided by values: One value is "protection"; another is "rise above". To learn to observe or look intently is fit too.
On top of something fairly usual in life, round off by tenable, solid conclusions for your next kin to learn by. Many proverbs or opinions seem to have such a basis. However, if the "ground" of learning and experiences is not firm, don't make up your mind very firmly, but maintain some reserve - or maybe an open-ended, tentative approach is fit.
If there are reasons to be undecided or usure of something, keep conclusions about it hovering, in suspense. That is a fair way of dealing proficiently with things that are not clear-cut.
A person stands in need of enduring his or her family, more or less independence, the changing stations of life, and much else, because there may be less danger in enduring well than in preparing for blunt revolts, upheavals, revolutions and gross carnage, for example.

"Usually, so much effort is put into achieving one goal, that the other goals cannot be attained. But what about the man who strives to attain the Dharma? If he succeeds he has gained in that one goal far more . . .," writes Han Shan (1546-1623), and "Those who are . . . noble in the Buddha's Way always retain their wealth."
"The enlightened understand life and death." - Han Shan
