O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.

The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly.

Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.

The lips of the wise broadcast knowledge, but not so the heart of fools.

The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

Wisdom [is too] high for fools; at the gate he will not open his mouth.

As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
