When you sit down at the table with a great Lord, note what you have before you and put a knife to your throat if you are given to appetite; do not be desirous of his dainties, since they are deceitful food. Do not wear yourself out to get rich; save your cleverness. Riches sprout wings like an eagle and fly up to the heavens. Do not encroach on the fields of the orphan. An wayward wife is a narrow well. She lies in wait like a robber and increases the unfaithful among men. You will sleep as though you were in the crow's nest of a ship on the high seas
