The Maxims of Ptahhotep

"He who has a great heart has a gift from God. He who obeys his stomach obeys the enemy."

"Do not repeat a slanderous rumour, do not listen to it."

"So do not place any confidence in your heart in the accumulation of riches, since everything that you have is a gift from God."

May your heart never be vain because of what you know. Take counsel from the ignorant as well as the wise..."

"Do not blame those who are childless, do not criticise them for not having any, and do not boast about having them yourself."
