To My Son

O my son! the removing of stones with a wise man is better, than the drinking of wine with a sorry man,  and pour out thy wine on the tombs of the just, and drink not with ignorant, contemptible people.

(cleave to wisdom (and not knowledge), and avoid foolishness of any form)

O my son! cleave to wise men who fear God and be like them, and go not near the ignorant, lest thou become like him and learn his ways.
