Better stop short than fill to the brim. Oversharpen the blade, and the edge will soon blunt. Amass a store of gold and jade, and no one can protect it. Claim wealth and titles, and disaster will follow. Retire when the work is done. This is the way of heaven.
Let the coming hour overflow with joy, and let pleasure drown the brim. - William Shakespeare
Positive words left unsaid are like sachets of currency notes burnt in vain. Positive deeds left undone are like deep wells filled with soil to the brim. Do the undone, say the unsaid and turn the unturned. - Israelmore Ayivor
If you cannot inspire a woman with love of you, fill her above the brim with love of herself ~ all that runs over will be yours. - Charles Caleb Colton
Nothing is pending in the world…nothing is finished, yet nothing is unresolved…Everything is filled to the brim. - Carlos Castaneda
