Proverbs of a 38 yr old man
A dry crust of bread eaten in peace and quiet is better than a feast eaten where everyone argues. Yes, that piece of bread would be enjoyed more in the corner of an attic than a shared meal with a quarrelsome spouse. Dry bread is not a good meal. We might prefer the rich food at a party. But a quiet place is better than a place where people argue. A party can be noisy and unpleasant. Any arguments will upset people and spoil the meal. A person would be happier if they stayed at home. A piece of dry bread is better than special food at a party. If possible, we should not argue. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
