Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit ourselves to either
Quote by Aesop
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not...
We should look to the mind, and not to the outward appearance.
Enemies' promises were made to be broken
The injuries we do and those we suffer are seldom weighed in the same scales.
Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten.
Please all, and you will please none.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
The unhappy derive comfort from the misfortunes of others.
Adventure is worthwhile.
The haft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle's own Lures....
Familiarity breeds contempt.
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
Better to starve free than be a fat slave
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.
After all is said and done, more is said than done.
