The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. 13 Get security from someone who guarantees a stranger’s debt. Get a deposit if he does it for foreigners. 14 A loud and cheerful greeting early in the morning will be taken as a curse! 15 A quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping on a rainy day. 16 Stopping her complaints is like trying to stop the wind or trying to hold something with greased hands. 17 As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. 18 As workers who tend a fig tree are allowed to eat the fruit, so workers who protect their employer’s interests will be rewarded. 19 As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the real person........
