It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Quote by Aesop
Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.
Plodding wins the race.
It is thrifty to prepare today for the wants of tomorrow.
Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.
United we stand; divided we fall
Little friends may prove great friends.
Example is the best precept.
Destroy the seed of evil, or it will grow up to your ruin.
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit
It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not...
Please all, and you will please none.
We should look to the mind, and not to the outward appearance.
Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten
Persuasion is often more effectual than force.
Slow but steady wins the race.
Vices are their own punishment
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
