People often grudge others what they cannot enjoy themselves.
Quote by Aesop
The injuries we do and those we suffer are seldom weighed in the same scales.
Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety.
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
Example is the best precept.
Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.
Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
The unhappy derive comfort from the misfortunes of others.
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
The haft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle's own Lures....
He that is discontented in one place will seldom be happy in another.
The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when...
Any excuse will serve a tyrant.
Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties
'Trust' is important. But once a promise is broken 'sorry' means nothing.
Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation
