So, here we've got, "no corregir al hijo y no quererlo amarlo disciplinarlo," or in English "whoever spairs the rod hates their children, but the one who loves the children is careful to discipline them." which is nice cuz of all the child abuse, and whatnot.
The bad guys in Proverbs are clearly the fools. However, right behind them are those who take advantage of the poor.
Finally, I like this one for Carla from Top Chef, "better a little serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred. "
