Verse of the Day: 'Wisdom is better than might'

By Administrator 09-25-2006

So I said, "Wisdom is better than might; yet the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heeded." The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouting of a ruler among fools. Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one bungler destroys much good.

- Ecclesiastes 9:16-18
