A fool's anger is known at once, But a prudent man conceals dishonor.
He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who is quick-tempered exalts folly.
A stone is heavy and the sand weighty, But the provocation of a fool is heavier than both of them.
Do not be eager in your heart to be angry, For anger resides in the bosom of fools.
