Some truths stay true; e.g,
Some people keep silent because they have nothing to say, while others keep silent because they know when to speak.
A liar's way leads to disgrace.
Favors and gifts blind the eyes of the wise; like a muzzle on the mouth they stop reproofs.
Hidden wisdom and unseen treasure, of what value is either?
Flee from sin as from a snake; for if you approach sin, it will bite you.
Panic and insolence will waste away riches.
When an intelligent person hears a wise saying, he praises it and adds to it; when a fool hears it, he laughs.
Weep for the dead, for he left the light behind; and weep for the fool for he has left intelligence behind. Weep less bitterly for the dead, for he is at rest; but the life of the fool is worse than death.
One who throws a stone at birds scares then away, and one who reviles a friend destroys a friendship.
Gain the trust of your neighbor in his poverty, so that you may rejoice with him in his prosperity.
Sinners are overtaken through their lips; by them the reviler and the arrogant are tripped up.
