The man who attains understanding,
Her value in trade is better than silver,
Her yield, better than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
All of your goods cannot equal her.
In her right hand is length of days,
In her left, riches and honor.
Her ways are pleasant ways,
And all her paths, peaceful.
She is a Tree of Life to those who grasp her,
and whosoever holds unto her is happy.
-Solomon, from Proverbs 3:13-18
