The smaller the mind the greater the conceit
Quote by Aesop
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
Better be wise by the misfortunes of others than by your own.
Example is the best precept.
Better to starve free than be a fat slave
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Slow but steady wins the race.
Appearances are often deceiving.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
Self-conceit may lead to self destruction.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
Please all, and you will please none.
The gods help them that help themselves.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
It is thrifty to prepare today for the wants of tomorrow.
