Any excuse will serve a tyrant.
Quote by Aesop
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
Persuasion is often more effectual than force.
Destroy the seed of evil, or it will grow up to your ruin.
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
Adventure is worthwhile.
Example is the best precept.
Self-conceit may lead to self destruction.
The injuries we do and those we suffer are seldom weighed in the same scales.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety.
It is thrifty to prepare today for the wants of tomorrow.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
Plodding wins the race.
If you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you...
