Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Rana et Bove, the story of the frog who wanted to be as big as an ox.

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Dicunt enim et non faciunt (English: For they speak, and do not do it - a saying adapted from the Biblical Gospel of Matthew). You can use the Javascript to include the Latin proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog. Meanwhile, to read a brief essay about this proverb, visit the AudioLatinProverbs.com website.

Greek Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Ἀσφαλέστερον τοῦ λέγειν τὸ σιγᾷν (English: It is safer to stay silent than to speak). You can use the Javascript to include the Greek proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog - and each Greek proverb also comes with a Latin version.

Fable of the Day: Today's fable of the day from Barlow's Aesop is DE PISCATORE ET PISCICULO (the story of the little fish who begs the fisherman for mercy). You can use the Javascript to include the fable of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog - meanwhile, to find out more about today's fable, visit the Ning Resource Page, where you will find links to the text, commentary, as well as a discussion board for questions and comments.

Latin Via Fables: Grammar Commentary: I'm presenting the "Barlow Aesop" collection, fable by fable, with my commentary on each (a more expanded commentary than is possible within the confines of the book). Today's grammar commentary is Fable 80: Canis et Lupus, a wonderful fable in praise of freedom!
