Latin Proverbs and Fables Round-Up: April 10

Apologies for being out of touch here; it's been hectic in this all-online-all-the-time transition at my school, and I hope everybody is doing okay in this terrible time. Here is a round-up of today's proverbs and fables.

HODIE: ante diem quartum Idus Apriles



Caput columbae, cauda scorpionis est.
Its head is a dove's; its tail is a scorpion's.




Si felix est qui quae vult habet omnia, quare
Velle solent homines quae voluisse dolent?

Gratia gratiam parit.

Thanks give rise to thanks.




Ex parvo satis.
From little, enough.
