Khmer Proverb — Similar to “Nobody’s perfect.” (Image is not mine)
—Interpretation: Do not prejudge or act based on unconfirmed rumors or conjectures; it will only cause you grief.
— Interpretation: Try to avoid falling into forbidden passion as it will be difficult to control yourself once you do. Worldly lust and desires can incite many evils, such as violence and murder.
— Karma is a principle in Buddhism that posits your present action dictates your future. That is, accumulating merit though good deeds will bring good fortune, accumulating sin through evil deeds will bring misfortune. Hence, your birth as a human being and the condition you are born into, whether good or bad, are determined by your karma (the merit/sin you have accumulated from past lives).
Khmer Proverb — “Someone who is dumb may live for hundred years, but it is not better one day in the life of someone who is truly intelligent.”
