In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider.
Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.
The misfortune of the wise is better than the prosperity of the fool.

In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.
