Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Quote by Aesop
The unhappy derive comfort from the misfortunes of others.
Plodding wins the race.
United we stand; divided we fall
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.
Enemies' promises were made to be broken
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
Persuasion is often more effectual than force.
Adventure is worthwhile.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Destroy the seed of evil, or it will grow up to your ruin.
Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten
It is thrifty to prepare today for the wants of tomorrow.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
