Page 1 of 7 OT Feb 27, 2009 Chad Eggleton Proverbs “Anything worth having is hard to get” “It’s not a maintenance-free world” God helps those who help themselves To whom much is given, much is required You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar eats you. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy Closed mouths don’t get fed. A family that prays together stays together. Water can be lacking next to big pots When someone shows you their true self, believe them. Let your Where there are broken nests there are few whole eggs. If you can talk you can sing, if you can walk you can dance. Gold is still gold, even if you find it in your own backyard. Haitian: The gate you hate is where the sun will set.

They often come from and they often speak to a family context. Proverbs 1-9 Instruction from a Father to a Son Proverbs comes from an elite social setting, scribes. Less than 10% can read or write, maybe even 5%. Pleins talks about that it comes from an elite scribal setting. J.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
