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 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)
