We would often be sorry if our wishes were gratified.
Quote by Aesop
Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.
If you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you...
Persuasion is often more effectual than force.
United we stand; divided we fall
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good...
Better to starve free than be a fat slave
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.
Slow but steady wins the race.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
People often grudge others what they cannot enjoy themselves.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
The haft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle's own Lures....
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
Any excuse will serve a tyrant.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
