Wisdom is Supreme-Proverbs 4

Ahhhhh...it's not that easy to get "One Big Idea" or "One Power Phrase" is it? Isn't this 4th chapter of Proverbs amazing? I love it. Sooooo many great truths and thoughts. OK. So I'm having a hard time getting just one. Which one should I choose?
1. WISDOM IS SUPREME
4.7-8 - Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.
2. THE PATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS GETS BRIGHTER OVER TIME
4.18 - The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
3. EYES IN THE BOAT SAILOR
4.25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.
( I first heard the idea of "eyes in the boat sailor" from Mike Minter, who went to the Naval Academy. This was part of their training when young sailors were tempted to "look around". I have loved the clarity and image of that phrase from the first day I heard it)
Which one should I choose?
Happy 4th of July and 4th of Proverbs.
