Wisdom from The Wanderer

No man may indeed become wise before he has had his share of winters in this world’s kingdom.

The wise man must be patient, must never be too hot-hearted, nor too hasty of speech, nor too fearful, nor too glad, nor too greedy for wealth, nor ever too eager to boast before he has thought clearly.

A man must wait, when he speaks in boast, until he knows clearly, sure-minded, where the thoughts of his heart may turn.
