If you can’t keep your surroundings clean, you don’t love yourself.

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest..

 

By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding He set the heavens in place; by His knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.

 

Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor...

 

Take hold of instruction; actively seek it, grip it firmly and do not let go.
Guard her, for she is your life.

 

Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.

 

How useless to spread a net where every bird can see it!
