"In all thy getting, get understanding." from that wise sage, King Solomon, and often quoted by one of my economic heroes, Steve Forbes
And more from Solomon:
"The sluggard's cravings will be the death of him, because his hands refuse to work."
"Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome, ill-tempered wife."
"He who loves pleasure will become poor; whoever loves wine and oil will never be rich."
"In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but the foolish man devours all he has."
There are 31 chapters in Proverbs...one for each day of the month....good stuff!!!
