Proverbs 13:16

16 A commonsense person lives good sense; fools litter the country with silliness.

Proverbs 13:16 In-Context

14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, so, no more drinking from death-tainted wells!
15 Sound thinking makes for gracious living, but liars walk a rough road.
16 A commonsense person lives good sense; fools litter the country with silliness.
17 Irresponsible talk makes a real mess of things, but a reliable reporter is a healing presence.
18 Refuse discipline and end up homeless; embrace correction and live an honored life.
