Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something. Plato
Proverbs 18:2-3 Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions. Doing wrong leads to disgrace, and scandalous behavior brings contempt.
Proverbs 18:13 Spouting off before listening to the facts is both shameful and foolish.
Proverbs 18:6-7 Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating. The mouths of fools are their ruin; they trap themselves with their lips.
They continue in their foolishness.
Proverbs 26:11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness.
Proverbs 29:8-9 Mockers can get a whole town agitated, but the wise will calm anger. If a wise person takes a fool to court, there will be ranting and ridicule but no satisfaction.
Happy New Year! 🙂
