2)"A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and Honest people are screwed first."

4)"There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth."

5)" Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead."

6)"As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it."

12) "Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness."

13) "Treat your kid like a darling for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends."

14) "Books are as useful to a stupid person as a mirror is useful to a blind person."

I like the 13th one.

I liked it too, and every parent should like & understand it.

I try to treat my daughter like this.

That's good. :)

I appreciate it.

I find it difficult to agree with no.4

At first look, I wasn't even agreed with that. Later I thought, that love & satisfaction can be our interests.

I think we like to make our own mistakes and learn from them,

Its true we can learn from mistakes.

We do mistakes out of our ignorance. Knowledge prevents us from doing mistakes, it is the knowledge that we learn from mistakes. If we acquires knowledge in advance, we are less likely to do mistakes(unless intentional). And with the right knowledge we can prevent ourselves, even from doing intentional mistakes.
