Sabbath Keeping

 ~ the island life ~
"Loners who care only for themselves spit on the common good.
Fools care nothing for thoughtful discourse; all they do is run off at the mouth.
When wickedness arrives, shame's not far behind; contempt for life is contemptible.
Many words rush along like rivers in flood, but deep wisdom flows up from atesian springs.
It's not right to go easy on the guilty, or come down hard on the innocent.
The words of a fool start fights; do him a favor and gag him.
Fools are undone by their big mouths; their souls are crushed by their words.
Listening to gossip is like eating cheap candy; do you really want junk like that in your belly?
Slack habits and sloppy work are as bad as vandalism.
GOD's name is a place of protection--good people can run there and be safe.
The rich think their wealth protects them; they imagine themselves safe behind it.
Pride first, then the crash, but humility is precursor to honor.
Answering before listening is both stupid and rude.
A healthy spirit conquers adversity, but what can you do when the spirit is crushed?
Wise men and women are always learning, always listening for fresh insights."
~ Proverbs 18:1-15, the Message ~
"You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you." ~ John Wooden ~

"A man begins cutting his wisdom teeth the first time he bites off more than he can chew." 
~ Herb Caen ~

"Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom.

"He who devotes sixteen hours a day to hard study may become at sixty as wise as he thought himself at twenty." ~ Mary Wilson Little
"Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers." ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

"Patience is the companion of wisdom." ~ Saint Augustine ~

"Some folks are wise and some are otherwise." ~ Tobias Smollet ~

 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." ~ James 1:5 ~
