Here there is more good! I give it in the form of poem.

None should boast about his brains--
Be ever wary with words.
When the wise and quiet comes to the hall
Seldom he shames himself.
A better friend is found nowhere
Than good supply of sense.

The cautious guest come for a meal
Is still, but strains to hear,
Listens with ears, and looks with eyes;
The wise are watchful ever.

Blessed is he who has for himself
Good opinion and praise--
More difficult far to deal with that
Which hides in another's heart.

Blessed is he who has in himself
Others' good will and wisdom.
For ill advice too often comes
Out of another's breast.

No better store one bears on the road
Than supply of good sense--
Like a well-filled purse in a place unknown,
The wealth of those in want.

No better store one bears on the road
Than supply of good sense,
Nor bears a worse walking abroad
Than imbibing too much beer.

Less good it is than good it seems,
Mead, for the sons of men.
The longer one drinks the less he knows
What lies in his own heart.

You may,if you so wish, quote me.
