Dwarven Proverbs and Wisdom

  • The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; the mind of the wicked is of little worth.
  • A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.
  • Like a gold ring in a swine's snout is a beautiful woman without discretion.
  • There is gold, and abundance of costly stones; but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
  • Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold is a wise reprover to a listening ear.
  • Precious treasure remains in a wise man's dwelling, but a foolish man devours it.
  • Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and prosperity.
  • A rich man's wealth is his strong city; the poverty of the poor is their ruin.
  • One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.
  • The ransom of a man's life is his wealth, but a poor man has no means of redemption.
  • Wealth hastily gotten will dwindle, but he who gathers little by little will increase it.
  • A rich man's wealth is his strong city, and like a high wall protecting him.
  • Wealth brings many new friends, but a poor man is deserted by his friend.
  • He who oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to want.
  • He who augments his wealth by interest and increase gathers it for him who is kind to the poor.
  • Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.
  • A gracious woman gets honor, and violent men get riches.
  • He who trusts in his riches will wither, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.
