It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not strive as well as pray.
Quote by Aesop
We would often be sorry if our wishes were gratified.
He that is discontented in one place will seldom be happy in another.
Better be wise by the misfortunes of others than by your own.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything.
Don't let your special character and values, the secret that you know and no one...
Little friends may prove great friends.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties
Adventure is worthwhile.
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
We should look to the mind, and not to the outward appearance.
If you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you...
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
The unhappy derive comfort from the misfortunes of others.
