What is heavier than lead? …

What is heavier than lead? And what is its name except Fool?
Sand, salt and a piece of iron are easier to bear than a stupid man.

Like a dog that returns to his vomit, so is a fool who repeats his folly.

A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man quietly holds it back.
The vexation of a fool is known at once but the prudent man ignores an insult.

Do not follow your base desires but restrain your appetites. If you allow your soul to take pleasure in base desires, it will make you the laughing stock of your enemies.

Flee from Sin as from a snake; for if you approach it, it will bite you. Its teeth are lion’s teeth and destroy the souls of men.

When a sieve is shaken, the refuse remains. So a man’s filth remains in his thought.

Do not envy the honors of a sinner, for you do not know what his end will be.
