Aesop's thoughts for the NewYear ( A freed slave) who lived from 620 bc-560 bc
A fine appearance is a poor substitute for inward worth.
A man is known by the company he keeps.
A villain may disguise himself, but he will not deceive the wise.
Acquaintance softens prejudices.
An act of kindness is a good investment.
Avoid a remedy that is worse than the disease.
Be on guard against men who can strike from a distance.
Be reasonable in your criticism.
Benefits bestowed upon the evil-disposed increase their means of injuring you.
Better a certain enemy than a doubtful friend.
Beware of flatterers.
Beware of hypocrites.
Beware of the counsel of the unfortunate.
Change of habit cannot alter Nature.
Children are not to be blamed for the faults of their parents.
Choose the lesser of two evils.
Clothes do not make the man.
Contentment with our lot is an element of happiness.
Counsel without help is useless.
Count the cost before you commit yourselves.
Do not attempt to hide things which cannot be hid.
