Tout bousir est gazelle aux yeux de sa mère
Qui ne suit pas l'exemple de ceux qui ont réussi n'assurera pas sa fortune.

L'avare riche est plus pauvre que le pauvre généreux. You will have a better life if you are generous, even if you are poor. The rich end up living a bad life because they are too focused on material life.
