A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time.
One without sense enters an agreement and puts up security for his friend.
One who loves to offend loves strife; one who builds a high threshold invites injury.
One with a twisted mind will not succeed, and one with deceitful speech will fall into ruin.
A man fathers a fool to his own sorrow; the father of a fool has no joy.
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.
A wicked man secretly takes a bribe to subvert the course of justice.
Wisdom is the focus of the perceptive, but a fool's eyes roam to the ends of the earth.
A foolish son is grief to his father and bitterness to the one who bore him.
It is certainly not good to fine an innocent person, or to beat a noble for his honesty.
The intelligent person restrains his words, and one who keeps a cool head is a man of understanding.
