My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them.
The memory of the righteous will be a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot.

Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down.

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched?
Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.
