Through insolence comes nothing but strife, but wisdom is with those who receive counsel.
The one who despises the word will be in debt to it, but the one who fears the commandment will be rewarded.
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, to turn aside from the snares of death.
He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
