Better to be patient than powerful;
better to have self-control than to conquer a city.
Proverbs 16:32 (New Living Translation)
Better a patient man than a warrior,
a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.
Proverbs 16:32 (New International Version)
Moderation is better than muscle,
self-control better than political power.
Proverbs 16:32 (The Message)
