Be not cunning; be wise and patient

Watch out for wolves in sheep's clothing; be not one yourselves. You are sent out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be not cunning as the ancient serpent but be wise and patient as Noah; for he waited seven days before sending the dove out again. If you do as Noah did, then when the dove shall return even if in the evening, there shall be in its beak a freshly plucked olive leaf!
