Proverbs 13:11

11 Easy come, easy go, but steady diligence pays off.

Proverbs 13:11 In-Context

9 The lives of good people are brightly lit streets; the lives of the wicked are dark alleys.
10 Arrogant know-it-alls stir up discord, but wise men and women listen to each other's counsel.
11 Easy come, easy go, but steady diligence pays off.
12 Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.
13 Ignore the Word and suffer; honor God's commands and grow rich.
