He who holds his tongue is wise....

Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. HE who gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son. Blessings crown the head of the righteous but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked. When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.

-Proverbs 10:4-6,19

One of my favs!

Of course, there's always Prov 21:9....: Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife."
