Quote of the moment
Chapter 9 : avoid the heated

01  Do not befriend the heated man,
02  nor approach him for conversation.
03  Keep your tongue from answering your superior,
04  and take care not to insult him.

05  Let him not cast his speech to lasso You,
06  Nor give free rein to your answer.
07  Converse with a man of your own measure,
08  and take care not to {vex}.
09  Swift is speech when the heart is hurt,
10  more than wind {over} water.

11  He tears down, (and) he builds up with his tongue,
12  when he makes his hurtful speech.
13  He gives an answer worthy of a beating,
14  for its weight is harm.
15  He hauls freight like all the world,
16  but his load is falsehood.
17  He is the ferryman of snaring words,
18  he goes and comes with quarrels.
19  When he eats and drinks inside,
20  his answer is (heard) outside.
21  The day he is charged with his crime,
22  is misfortune for his children.

23  If only Khnum came to him!
24  The potter to the fiery-mouthed man,
25  so as to knead his {states of mind}.
26  He is like a young wolf in the farmyard,
27  he turns one eye against the other,
28  he causes brothers to quarrel,
29  he runs before every wind like clouds,
30  he dims the radiance of the Sun,
31  he flips his tail like the crocodile's young,
32  {he gathers himself together, crouched.}
33  His lips are sweet, his tongue is bitter.
34  A fire burns in his belly.
35  Do not leap up to join such a one,
36  lest a terror carry You away.
~ The Instruction of Amenemope, Akhim, Egypt, ~1100 BC ~
