FROM THE BIBLE'S BOOK OF PROVERBS :
Four things that are intolerable, three things cause the earth to tremble, even four it cannot bear up under:
a slave when he becomes king, a godless fool when he is filled with food, a woman who is unloved when she gets married, a maid when she replaces her mistress
Four things on earth that are small, yet they are very wise:
Ants are not a strong species,
Yet they store their food in the summer.
Rock Badgers are not mighty species,
Yet they make their home in the rocks.
Locust have no King,
Yet all them divide into swarms by instinct.
A lizard you can hold in your hands,
Yet it can even be found in royal places.
There are three Things that walk with dignity, even four that march with dignity:
A lion, mightiest among animals, which turns away from nothing,
A strutting rooster,
A male goat,
A king at the head of his army.
If you are such a godless fool as to honor yourself,
or if you scheme,
you had better put your hand over your mouth.
As churning milk produces butter
and punching a nose produces blood,
so stirring up anger produces a fight.
-The Book of Proverbs 30: 21-35
