In generosity and helping others, be like a river
In compassion and grace, be like the sun
In concealing other's faults, be like the night
In anger and fury, be as if you have died
In modesty and humility, be like the earth
In tolerance, be like the sea
And either appear as you are, or be as you appear

Received from oral tradition of Rumi, paraphrased by Kabir Helminski.

The Thief Will Enter
 
No matter what plans you make,
no matter what you acquire,
the thief will enter from the unguarded side.
 
Be occupied, then, with what you really value
and let the thief take something less.
 
Mathnawi II, 1505-07
