The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence. (10:11)
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death. (13:14)
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. (4:18)
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (4:23)
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. (27:17)

For receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fair (1:3)
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (17:22)
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. (16:18)
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. (15:1)
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. (17:17)
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. (4:7)
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (18:21)
One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (18:24)
Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise. (20:1)
Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. (1:8)

Those who have no sense deride their neighbors, but those who have understanding hold their tongues. (11:12)
