Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
(Proverbs 13:18)

A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent. Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die. A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise. The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise. He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
(Proverbs 15:5,10,12,31,32)

A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
