AudioLatinProverbs.com: In addition to the Latin proverb of the day, I've added a new essay to the AudioLatinProverbs.com blog about the saying Parentes patientia vince (In English: Overcome your parents with patience).

Greek Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Ὀυκ ἀεὶ ποταμὸς ἀξίνας φέρει (English: The river does not always offer axes - an allusion to the famous Aesop's fable about Mercury and the man who lost his axe in the river).
