A Chinese Aphorism

Here's a saying my parents are fond of quoting:

路遥知马力,日久见人心

lu4 yao2 zhi1 ma3 li4
ri4 jiu3 jien3 ren2 xing1


Literal translation:
road long (spatial sense) [to know] horse force
day long (temporal sense) [to meet] person heart

Meaning:
By a long road shall a horse's full strength be known;
By the test of time shall a person's true heart be revealed.
