From Proverbs

New-Coll-garden1-67

Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire;
    he breaks out against all sound judgment.
 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
    but only in expressing his opinion.
 When wickedness comes, contempt comes also,
    and with dishonour comes disgrace.
 The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters;
    the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
 It is not good to be partial to[a] the wicked
    or to deprive the righteous of justice.
A fool’s lips walk into a fight,
    and his mouth invites a beating.
 A fool’s mouth is his ruin,
    and his lips are a snare to his soul.
8The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;
    they go down into the inner parts of the body.
 A rich man’s wealth is his strong city,
    and like a high wall in his imagination.
 Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty,
    but humility comes before honour.
