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.


Lupus et Canis Saginatus
