For the Christian, the Book of Proverbs is a prime example of wise advice. But what about other quotes by philosophers and wise people from India, China, Africa, Greece, and other civilizations? Here is one for you to think about.

Here’s one to consider by Firdausī (Ferdosi), Abū l‐Qāsim (c.940–1020) Persian poet and author:

If passion gains mastery over reason, the wise will not count you among them.

(Cf. Galatians 5:24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to His cross and crucified them there.)
