As a fool and a plebiscite, I find myself doing the stupidest things. Wisdom is needed, and I hope to share in this journey with you all. Let's share books, excerpts, ideas, platitudes, etc, in order to collectively grow and do better for ourselves.
I'll start. I read through the book of Proverbs and wrote down some bits that help me not be a fucking moron.
>The soul of the sluggard craves in vain, but the soul of the diligent is amply satisfied
>Walk with wise men and you will become wise, but the companion of fools will fare badly
>He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him takes care to chastise him
>The heart knows it's own bitterness, and in its joy no one else shares
>Sometimes a way seems right to a man, but the end of it leads to death!
>Even a fool, if he keeps silent, is considered wise; if he closes his lips, intelligent
>It is better to dwell in the wilderness than with a quarrelsome or vexatious wife
And my favorite,
>like an open city with no defenses is the man with no check on his feelings
