Proverbs of a 39 yr old man

Attitudes of work. I see people who are skillful at there work. They achieve great things because they are jealous of other people. People often see all the things that other people have. They look at other people and they become jealous. So perhaps they spend much time and effort as they try to be successful. However, they may not always produce a good result. They may neglect their family and they may lose their friends. They may lose their own good health too. Now compare those people who work hard to the lazy people. The lazy person has decided not work and lives as a victim to the harshness of society. The result of this thinking is that they ruin themselves. Becoming so poor that they have nothing to eat. So selfish that other people do not respect them. In the end, they do not respect themselves. There needs to be balance here between these two attitudes towards work. To gain a lot, you must work too much. And if you work too hard you do not achieve anything really worthwhile. This sort of behavior is like someone who is trying to catch the wind. If you have enough, it seems better to live without too much effort. Then your life will be quiet and calm. It is better to be content than to be jealous. But the lazy person is worse off more than anyone. Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work. All day long he craves for more, but the righteous give without sparing.
