Do not boast1 about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.22
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips.33
Stone is heavy and sand4 a burden, but provocation by a fool is heavier than both.
Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy?55
Better is open rebuke than hidden love.
Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.67
He who is full loathes honey, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.
Like a bird that strays from its nest7 is a man who strays from his home.
Perfume8 and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
