Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.
Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse.
Haughty eyes and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, are sin!
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
Before his downfall a man’s heart is proud, but humility comes before honor.
Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
