He who loves pleasure will become a poor man;
He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.

Do not be with heavy drinkers of wine,
Or with gluttonous eaters of meat;
For the heavy drinker and the glutton will come to poverty,
And drowsiness will clothe them with rags.

Proverbs 25:16

Have you found honey? Eat only enough for you,
Lest you have more than your fill and vomit it.

A satisfied soul tramples the honeycomb,
But to a hungry soul any bitter thing is sweet.

Proverbs 28:7

He who observes the law is a son who understands,
But he who befriends gluttons humiliates his father.
