Latin Proverbs and Fables Round-Up: July 17

Here is a round-up of today's proverbs and fables. I also finished the final "Tiny Tales" books! After Tiny Tales of Nasruddin and Tiny Tales of India, I've finished up with Tiny Tales from Aesop (in English). You can get the free ebook and free audiobook at

If you're curious about this quick-and-easy self-publishing, I've written up some notes here: Documenting the Tiny Tales Project. Hopefully I'll finish up a Teacher's Guide for the series this month before I start getting classes ready in August.

HODIE: ante diem sextum decimum
Kalendas Augustas

Sine pennis volare haud facile est.
It's not easy to fly without wings.

Quae tibi sunt ingrata, aliis ne feceris umquam:
Fac aliis contra, quae tibi grata forent.

Parentes ama, familiam cura.
Love your parents; care for your family.

Omne bonum dei donum.
Every good thing is a gift of God.
