She is more precious than rubies: And none of the things thou canst desire are to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: And happy is every one that retaineth her.
It is as sport to a fool to do wickedness; And so is wisdom to a man of understanding.

Wisdom is too high for a fool: He openeth not his mouth in the gate.

Consider what I say; for the Lord shall give thee understanding in all things.
1 Corinthians 3:18-20
Let no man deceive himself. If any man thinketh that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
