“Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts
satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.”

“The rich and poor meet together:
the LORD is the maker of them all.”
When the rich and poor meet together, the rich despise the poor for their poverty and stupidity, and the poor envy the rich for their prosperity and arrogance.

“As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout,
so is a fair woman which is without discretion.”
Beauty is not much, if the woman with it does not know how to act. It is hard to appreciate a nose ring on a stinking, grunting, and hairy pig!

“A gracious woman retaineth honour:
and strong men retain riches.”

“The simple believeth every word:
but the prudent man looketh well to his going.”
