The north wind produces rain, and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a contentious wife.
Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain are the righteous who give way before the wicked.
It is not good to eat much honey, or to seek honor on top of honor.
Like a city breached, without walls, is one who lacks self-control.
