A TOUR OF PROVERBS/MISHLEI WITH NEIEL
Like snow in summer and rain at harvest; So honor is not fitting for a dullard. If you see a man who thinks himself wise, There is more hope for a dullard than him. The lazy man buries his hand in the bowl; He will not even bring it to his mouth. Do not engage someone elses quarrel; As you would not seize a dog by its ears. For lack of wood a fire goes out; And without a querulous man contention is stilled. He who digs a pit will fall in it; And whoever rolls a stone, it will roll back on him.
Two very good quality (one is Jos. A. Banks) blazers have been in our coat closet for several months. If they are not claimed by the end of July, they will be donated.
