Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 14 :29

That is hasty of spirit - קצר רוח ketsar ruach, "the short of spirit;" one that is easily irritated; and, being in a passion, he is agitated so as to be literally short of breath. Here put in opposition to ארך אפים erech appayim, long of nostrils; see on Proverbs 14:17 (note); and of the same import with St. Paul's μακροθυμια, longsuffering, longmindedness. See on Ephesians 4:2 (note).

Exalteth folly - Lifts it up, as it were, on high, and exposes it to the gaze of all men.
