THE RUFUS RIDDLE NO. 13
Hey hey hey! As usual my riddles are for fun. So if you pass by and you want to take a swing at it, please do with full strength :).
This is Riddle No. 13: Let's see how SMART you are!
Here it goes:
"Boast not thyself of to morrow;
For thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty;
But a fool's wrath is heavier than them both.
Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous;
But who is able to stand before envy?
The full soul loatheth on honeycomb;
But to the hungry soul
Every bitter thing is sweet.
As a bird that wandereth from his nest,
So is a man that wandereth from his place.
My son, be wise, and make my heart glad,
That I may answer him that reproacheth me."
Who wrote these words?
HINT: It is essential to be wise, and to be wise is a gift from God.
