Fools, friends, and family (Prov 17:16-1:17)

“Why should fools have a price

In his hand

To buy wisdom?

They have no mind to learn.

A friend loves at all times.

Kinsfolk are born to share adversity.”

No fool can buy wisdom because they do not have a learning mind. A friend will love you all the time, no matter what. Your family, where you were born into, is there to share in your adversities.
