Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten.
Quote by Aesop
Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything.
The injuries we do and those we suffer are seldom weighed in the same scales.
Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
Appearances are often deceiving.
Little friends may prove great friends.
The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when...
Enemies' promises were made to be broken
Example is the best precept.
If you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you...
A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.
Persuasion is often more effectual than force.
United we stand, divided we fall.
