A new proverb was posted on Tuesday, August 30 in the Mishlei section. This proverb compares the rewards of financial success with the benefits of tranquility, that is a peaceful life. Tranquility is so essential that a truly wise person will be ready to give up all the benefits of material wealth and even be ready to subsist on dry bread if that is what it takes to achieve a tranquil life.
