Unjust anger cannot be justified, for anger tips the scale to one's ruin.
Those who are patient stay calm until the right moment, and then cheerfulness comes back to them.
They hold back their words until the right moment; then the lips of many tell of their good sense.
In the treasuries of wisdom are wise sayings, but godliness is an abomination to a sinner.
If you desire wisdom, keep the commandments, and the Lord will lavish her upon you.
