18:16 A person’s gift makes room for him,
and leads him before important people.
19:4 Wealth adds many friends,
but a poor person is separated from his friend.
19:6 Many people entreat the favor of a generous person,
and everyone is the friend of the person who gives gifts.
22:11 The one who loves a pure heart
and whose speech is gracious – the king will be his friend.
22:29 Do you see a person skilled in his work?
He will take his position before kings;
he will not take his position before obscure people.
