A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.
A fool’s lips walk into a fight, and his mouth invites a beating.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.
A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul.
Folly is a joy to him who lacks sense, but a man of understanding walks straight ahead.
One who is wise is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is reckless and careless.
It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife, but every fool will be quarreling.
