I know this isn't at all what you are asking for, but I imediately
thought of this little Chinese gnomic poem a friend taught me some
years ago.  Each line is a three character saying.  The characters
are in Big5 | GuoBiao | HZ encodings.  The translations aren't
terribly good.

Mind precedes its objects. They are mind-governed and mind-made.
To speak or act with a defiled mind is to draw pain after oneself,
like a wheel behind the feet of the animal drawing it.        Dhammapada:1
