Knowledge creates fear of God.

Practice makes knowledge perfect.

To teach is to learn.

Honesty is Divine language.

To fulfill promises is the highest form of integrity.

Truth means conformity of speech with the Divine mode of working.

Friendship is impossible with a liar.

Misrepresentation spoils narration.

Lying spoils news.

Enemity is the occupation of fools.

One's obedience to God is proportionate to one's wisdom.

To fight against one's own desires is highest wisdom.

The wise aim at perfection.

The foolish aim at wealth.

To separate oneself from things of time and to connect oneself with things of eternity is highest wisdom.

He is really wise whose actions reflect his words.

Humility is the product of knowledge.

Self-conceit poisons the mind.

Self-conceit impedes progress.

Pride mars greatness.

Humility is one of the nets spread by real greatness.

Boasting issues from small minds.

The idea of *fearing God* may be confusing due to the
varied meaning of the word 'fear.'

Generally 'fearing God' means regarding God with
awe (high esteem.) Not squirming & cringing in terror.
Yes, I know the sayings aren't Bible based. The idea is the interpretation of the word 'fear.'
For me, fear isn't about being terrified, but it is more than awed. Christian theology says that all sins are forgiven for believers, and you enter into a new convenant with God as your parent. But he's your parent. And good parents will discipline, not to punish, but to help you become the person he intended you to be (ref Hebrews 12:3-11).
It can be useful to focus on commonalities across religious traditions.
