The smaller the mind the greater the conceit
Quote by Aesop
Vices are their own punishment
Persuasion is often more effectual than force.
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
Better to starve free than be a fat slave
The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when...
Self-conceit may lead to self destruction.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
United we stand; divided we fall
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties
We should look to the mind, and not to the outward appearance.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
Enemies' promises were made to be broken
Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.
