The wrath of the fool is known on the very day; but he that concealeth the disgrace is prudent.
A covenant had I made with my eyes: how then should I fix my look on a virgin?
Like a city that is broken in, and is without walls: so is the man that hath no control over his spirit.
A fool uttereth all his mind; but the wise holdeth it back.
One that is slow to anger is better than a hero; and he that ruleth his spirit, than the conqueror of a city.
Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it will eat its fruit.
