Quote by Aesop
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
Example is the best precept.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
Little friends may prove great friends.
The injuries we do and those we suffer are seldom weighed in the same scales.
United we stand; divided we fall
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
Destroy the seed of evil, or it will grow up to your ruin.
Self-conceit may lead to self destruction.
Better be wise by the misfortunes of others than by your own.
We would often be sorry if our wishes were gratified.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.
A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.
Please all, and you will please none.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
