• Proverbs 8:11
    For wisdom is better than rubies,
    And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.

     
  • Proverbs 14:17
    A quick-tempered man acts foolishly,
    And a man of wicked intentions is hated.

     
  • Ecclesiastes 7:8-10
    The end of a thing is better than its beginning;
    The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
    Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry,
    For anger rests in the bosom of fools.
    Do not say,
    "Why were the former days better than these?"
    For you do not inquire wisely concerning this.

     
  • Ecclesiastes 7:29
    Truly, this only I have found:
    That God made man upright,
    But they have sought out many schemes."

     
  • Luke 9:62
    But Jesus said to him, "No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."
     
  • 1 Corinthians 10:13
    No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
