Affairs are easier of entrance than of exit; and it is but common prudence to see our way out before we venture in.
Quote by Aesop
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not...
We would often be sorry if our wishes were gratified.
Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Slow but steady wins the race.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Better to starve free than be a fat slave
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties
He that always gives way to others will end in having no principles of his...
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Plodding wins the race.
United we stand, divided we fall.
Example is the best precept.
Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety.
