Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of a man who gives gifts. (Proverbs 19:6)

It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes! (Proverbs 19:10)

A king's rage is like the roar of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. (Proverbs 19:12)
