Aesop's Morals

Remember that random book I told you about that I got for my baby shower, the 'Random reference for the modern parent.' Here's another little bit from it.

Morals in Aesop's Fables

Photograph:The mouse begs the lion for his life in a wood engraving by Boris Artzybasheff in his edition of Aesop’s Fables.

The Boy who Cried Wolf - Liars are not believed when they tell the truth
The Fox who Lost His Tail - Misery loves company
The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs - Much wants more and loses all
The Hare and the Tortoise - Slow and steady wins the race
The Milkmaid and her Pail - Don't count your chickens before they hatch
The Peacock and the Crane - Fine feathers don't make fine birds
The Man and his Two Sweethearts - Those who seek to please everyone, please no one
The Fox and the Goat - Look before you leap
The Farmer and the Stork - Birds of a feather flock together
