A man of wisdom

     

A foolish man stirs up strife between others  while a man of wisdom sows the seeds of love.
A fool sows seeds of discord between the brethren, while wise men sow peace.
A fool races forward in ventures where angels fear to trod, while a wise man meditates and prays before making decisions and always walks with patience.
A fool boasts of his own accomplishments and sounds his own horn, while a man of wisdom seeks no praise because he knows praise is a fleeting thing, but rather walks with humility.
A fool is quick to anger while a man of wisdom is slow to wrath and walks with temperance in all things.
A fool can be relied on for only one thing, to be foolish, while wise man will always act with wisdom.
