Proverbs II

Like a traveler with no map is a fool who attempts to give advice.

As the bird that migrates to the south through sheer instinct, is the faith of a wise man.

Like stale pastries is the advice of a fool, for though it may appear appealing, it is no good.

Words from a wise man to a listening ear is like a downpour of rain in a drought-stricken land, for much life will spring forth afterwards.

A gathering of fools is worse than a band of thieves, for at least thieves are aware of the repercussions their actions might cause.

The treasures of the richest billionaire in the world cannot compare to the worth of being in the midst of wise advisers.

As a moth is drawn to a flame, so is a fool who is drawn to his folly.

A wise man knows when he sins, but a fool knows no difference.

Woe to the man who crosses paths with a fool, for it would be better to to dine with his enemies than to dine with him.

Like a buried treasure uncovered is a person who allies himself with a wise man.

Worse is it to call a fool a friend you trust, than to stay with a husband who abuses you.

A wise friend is more precious than a diamond in the rough, for diamonds can only buy you so much, while the the rare alliance with a wise man is priceless.
