My favorite Proverbs, and a few unexpected jabs that come with a verticle message.

A wise man's words express deep streams of thought.

Smile...that's the curve that helps to set things straight.
One hand opened in charity is worth two closed in prayer.
Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that crushed it.
Tact is the art of thinking twice before saying nothing.

As it is wise not to seek a secret, it is also honest not to reveal one.
No one, regardless of how well advised he is, can stand against the LORD.

Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go.
Wise men learn many things from their enemy.
Eternal visitation is the price of relatives.
Reverence for God gives life, happiness and protection from harm.

The things which hurt, instruct.
Under the cover of expect nothing, disappointments can not hit you.
Resolve to be better for the echo of it.
No echos return to mock the silent tongue.
Silence is golden, duct tape is silver.

About the only thing that can't be misquoted is silence.
What a shame; yes, how stupid...to decide before knowing the facts.
A wise teacher makes learning a joy.
Your riches won't help you on Judgement Day; only righteousness counts then.

Wits are a battle in life which most people fight unarmed.
Rejoice with them that do rejoice and weep with them that weep.
An angry man is silenced by giving him a gift.
The best kind of mind is that which minds his own business.
He who shuts his ears to the cries of the poor, will be ignored in his own time of need. *Butterflyv*
