A new proverb has been posted to the Mishlei section as of today (Wednesday, April 29).

This subject was previously treated in Segment 14-16, which has now been named Forbearance I. The new posting in Segment 15-01 has been named Forbearance II. Another proverb dealing with this subject is in Segment 14-29 (Forbearance III).
