Do not eat the bread of a man who is stingy; do not desire his delicacies, for he is like one who is inwardly calculating. "Eat and drink!" he says to you, but his heart is not with you. You will vomit up the morsels you have eaten, and waste your pleasant words (Proverbs 23:6-8).Make sure that you don't borrow or ask favours from somebody who is cheap because in the end you will regret it. Cheap people insist that everything be fair when somebody is borrowing from them, but will take what they can get when they are borrowing from somebody else. If they are getting a good deal the other person must be getting a bad deal. Borrow and get money from them at your own risk, because they will require every last penny and even more, since they always get the better end of the deal. The end of the matter is that they will not like you, or you will not like them.
