King Solomon said: I have watched the way our world works.
A poor, wise man knew how to save the town.
But afterwards no one thought to thank him.
Those who are wise will be despised IF THEY ARE POOR.
Better to hear the quiet words of a wise person than the shouts of a foolish king.
Highlights of Ecclesiastes 9:13-17
