A gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words stir up anger.
The wise person makes learning a joy; fools spout only foolishness.
The LORD is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.
Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
Only a fool despises a parent's discipline; whoever learns from correction is wise.
There is treasure in the house of the godly, but the earnings of the wicked bring trouble.
Only the wise can give good advice; fools cannot do so.
