Better be wise by the misfortunes of others than by your own.
Quote by Aesop
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls
Adventure is worthwhile.
Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
We would often be sorry if our wishes were gratified.
The haft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle's own Lures....
Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten
If you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you...
The injuries we do and those we suffer are seldom weighed in the same scales.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
United we stand; divided we fall
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Slow but steady wins the race.
Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety.
After all is said and done, more is said than done.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
