A proverb of Solo squash.
A wise athlete makes their coach
But a foolish athlete is the grief of their
The trophies gained by cheating
will be of no benefit,
But cleanliness is what rescues
Administrators will not cause the righteous
one to remain victoryless,
but will deny the wicked what
Idle focus will cause poverty,
But diligent training brings riches.
The athlete acting with insight gathers the
techniques during off season,
But the athlete partying in off season
is asleep during the finals.
Blessings are on the crown of the
But the inaccuracy of records
conceals inadequacy of training.
The memory of a diligent one is
But the name of the lazy will
The wisehearted athlete will accept
But the one trash talking will
step in their own excrement.
The one moving in integrity will move
But the one cheating
will be found out.
The one who lies sinks to
And the one who speaks foolishly
will peak inappropriately.
The sayings of the righteous ones are a
source of living,
But the speech of the wicked
Hatred of others is destructive,
But love covers over all
Wisdom is found on the lips of the
educated and experienced coach,
But suspension is for the athlete caught
cheating or abusing.
Those who are wise absorb knowledge,
But the foolish sprout ruined weeds everywhere.
The wealth of a rich athlete is their temple.
The ruin of the poor athlete is their temple too.
The activity of the righteous leads
to quality performance;
But the free time of the lazy
leads to sin.
The one who heeds discipline is on pathway
to high performance,
But the one who ignores reproof
leads others astray.
The one who conceals their hatred
And the one gossiping maliciously is stupid.
When words are many, transgression
cannot easily be avoided,
But whoever controls their lips acts
The wisdom of the righteous coach is like
the finest silver,
But the information of the incompetent is
The processes of the veteran coach
But the foolish are static from lack of sense.
It is the blessings of purposeful practice that
makes one optimally fit,
And adds no pain with it.
Shameful conduct within your sport is stupid,
A wise attitude is for the discerning athlete.
What the fool fears will come upon them;
But the desire of the wise will be granted.
When the storm passes by, the foolish
one will be no more,
But the wise one is a
Like tobacco stains upon teeth and smoke
in the eyes,
So the lazy participant is to the coach training them.
The fear of medocrity prolongs life,
But the years of the foolish will be
The expectation of the righteous athlete
But the hope of the wicked participant will
The way of purposeful practice is a stronghold
for the blameless one,
But it means ruin for lazy fools.
The righteous one will never be made
But the wicked will no longer
inhabit our courts.
The racket of the righteous athlete
produces reasonable quality,
But the cheating arm will be cut
The spirit of sport knows
what is life pleasing,
and that the cheater is perverse.
