Gleanings from Proverbs 27

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.

Let another praise you and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.

Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy.

A prudent man sees evil and hides himself; the naive proceed and pay the penalty.

Iron sharpens iron; so one man sharpens another.

Though you pound a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain, yet his foolishness will not depart from him.
