The gods help them that help themselves.
Quote by Aesop
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
Example is the best precept.
Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten
United we stand; divided we fall
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...
Appearances are often deceiving.
Vices are their own punishment
It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not...
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.
Self-conceit may lead to self destruction.
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
The unhappy derive comfort from the misfortunes of others.
After all is said and done, more is said than done.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
