Ahiqar
A man is judged by his deeds, not by his words.
Ahiqar quotes
O my boy! he who doeth good shall meet with good; and he who doeth evil shall meet with evil, for the Lord requiteth a man according to the measure of his work.
O my boy! what shall I say more to thee than these sayings? for the Lord knoweth what is hidden, and is acquainted with the mysteries and the secrets.
And He will requite thee and will judge, betwixt me and thee, and will recompense thee according to thy desert.
Ahiqar
O my boy! thou hast been to me like a man who took a stone, and threw it up to heaven to stone his Lord with it. And the stone did not hit, and did not reach high enough, but it became the cause of guilt and sin.
O my boy! if thou hadst honoured me and respected me and hadst listened to my words thou wouldst have been my heir and wouldst have reigned over my dominions.
O my son! know thou that if the tail of the dog or the pig were ten cubits long it would not approach to the worth of the horse's even if it were like silk.
O my boy! I thought that thou wouldst have been my heir at my death; and thou through thy envy and thy insolence didst desire to kill me. But the Lord delivered me from thy cunning.




Ahiqar quotes
Better a patient man than a warrior, one who controls his temper than one who takes a city.
Ahiqar
Open your door to a good day and prepare yourself for a bad one.
Ahiqar quotes
He who digs a pit for his brother shall fall into it; and he who sets up traps shall be caught in them.
Ahiqar
Better late than never.
Ahiqar quotes
In an instant illumination can be achieved, it is as easy as turning on a light, the problem is finding the switch in the dark.
Ahiqar
If you are looking for a friend who has no faults, you will have no friends.
Ahiqar
Experience will show you, a Master can only point the way.
Ahiqar
Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with truth.
