Proverbs 26:11

As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.

– Proverbs 26:11

This proverb highlights the ineradicable nature of folly to a fool. The image of the dog returning to its own vomit is deliberately nauseating and apt as a picture of the fool returning to his folly. A fool is known by the fact that no matter how high he seems to attain, the depth of folly is his delight and continual resort.
