Proverbs For A Modern World

It is better to speak quietly from the heart sincerely, and face the wrath of others, than it is to speak a lie to please, and be loudly applauded. 

Better that unpleasantness assault us from without, than self-deception erode us from within. 

Better to be accused by others for one’s convictions, than to be convicted by one’s own conscience. 

Better to be silent against rage, than to rage against silence; and to hold one’s tongue before they cut it out.

Better to defend truth and face discomfort, than promote deception and enjoy comfort.

Better to listen, than to speak; and to speak after you’ve heard.

Better to bow humbly in obedience before God, than to stand proudly on parade before men.
