Enemies' promises were made to be broken
Quote by Aesop
Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
After all is said and done, more is said than done.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
Appearances are often deceiving.
It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not...
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
He that is discontented in one place will seldom be happy in another.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
Little friends may prove great friends.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Better be wise by the misfortunes of others than by your own.
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
