A good name is better than a very fine perfume, and the day of death is better than the day of birth.
It is better to go to a house where there is mourning than to a house in celebration, because death is everyone's destiny; the living must take this seriously!
Sadness is better than laughter, because the sad face improves the heart.
The heart of the wise man is in the house where there is mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of joy.
It is better to hear the rebuke of a wise man than the song of fools.
Just like the crackle of thorns under the pan, so is the laughter of fools. It also doesn't make sense.
Truly, oppression would make the sage mad, and bribery corrupts the heart.
The end of things is better than the beginning of them, the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Do not allow anger to quickly dominate your spirit, for anger is lodged within the fools.
Don't say, "Why were the days of the past better than today?" Because this question does not come from wisdom.
Wisdom is as good as inheritance, and those who see the sun benefit from it.
Because wisdom serves as a defense, as money serves as a defense; but the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to its possessor.
Consider what God did: Who can straighten what he did crookedly?
When the days are good, enjoy them well; but, when they are bad, consider: God did both as well as the other, to prevent man from discovering anything about his future.
In this meaningless life I have seen it all: a righteous man who died despite his justice, and an ungodly man who lived long despite his wickedness.
Do not be too fair or too wise; why destroy yourself?
Do not be too wicked and do not be foolish; why die before time?
It is good to retain one thing and not give up the other, for whoever fears God will avoid both extremes.
Wisdom makes a sage more powerful than a city guarded by ten mighty men.
Actually, there is no righteous man on earth, who does good, and never sin
Do not pay attention to all the words that the people say, otherwise you may hear your own servant speaking ill of you;
because in your heart you know that many times you have also spoken ill of others yourself.
I examined all this through wisdom and said: I am determined to be wise; but that was out of my reach.
The reality is far away and very profound; who can discover it?
That is why I dedicated myself to learn, to investigate, to seek the wisdom and the raison d'être of things, to understand that wickedness is folly and that folly is madness.
I found that much more bitter than death is the woman who serves as a snare, whose heart is a trap and whose hands are in chains. The man who pleases God will escape it, but the sinner will be beaten.
"Look," says the Master, "this is what I discovered: When comparing one thing with another to discover its reason for being, yes, during my search that has not yet ended, among a thousand men, I discovered only one that I think is worthy, but among women I have not found one.
So I came to this conclusion: God made men righteous, but they were looking for many intrigues. "
