Beatus homo qui invenit sapientiam
et qui affluit prudentia:
Melior est acquisitio eius negotiatione argenti,
Et auri primi et purissimi.

English.png English translation

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom and who advances to prudence:
Her acquisition is better than trading in silver, and [her fruit is better] than the first and purest gold.
