By insolence comes nothing but strife,
but with those who take advice is wisdom.
Wealth gained hastily will dwindle,
but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.
Whoever despises the word brings destruction on himself,
but he who revers the commandment will be rewarded.
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
that one may turn away f rom the snares of death.
~Proverbs 13: 10-14
