Proverbiis Pipilo: You can see my Twitter feed, full of proverbs while I am online each day - here's a recent one I really liked: Nulli per ventos assa columba volat.

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Sapit qui reputat (English: He is wise who thinks twice - so, if you are wise, never be afraid to admit you made a mistake). 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 Ἀεὶ τοῖς μικροῖς μικρὰ διδοῦσι θεοί (English: On tiny people, the gods bestow tiny things - although if that involves tiny evils instead of big ones, maybe that's not so bad, eh?). 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 CERVO IN AQUAS INSPICIENTE (the story of the deer's vanity). 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: Simplified Fables: I'm now presenting the "Barlow Aesop" collection, fable by fable, in a SIMPLIFIED version (same story, but in simpler sentences) - with a SLIDESHOW presentation to go along with it, too. Today's Simplified fable is Fable 18: Rusticus et Accipiter, the story of the peasant who caught a hawk who was chasing a dove.

Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Vulpe et Aquila, the story of the eagle who stole the fox's cub.
