Maging tulad ng kawayan -- yumuyuko kapag malakas ang unos upang makatayo uli nang buo pagkatapos ng masamang panahon. (Be like the bamboo -- it bends at the height of the storm, so it can stand whole once again after the bad weather.)

Alamin mo ang iyong kahinaan upang mapangibabawan mo ito. (Know your weaknes, so you can overcome it.)
