Latin Proverbs and Fables Round-Up: May 25

I'm back again! The past few months, and the past couple years, have been pretty topsy-turvy with family stuff, but I'm going to try a new approach with the Bestiaria this summer so that it lines up with some other projects I am working on this summer. Let's see if I can manage to bring this back to life for the summer at least!

HODIE: ante diem octavum Kalendas Iunias.

ANIMAL PROVERBS: This is a new project I've just started to go along with some animal story work I am doing this summer. :-)

A bove maiori discit arare minor.
The younger ox learns to plow from the elder.

Cochlea consiliis, in factis esto volucris
Be a snail in your planning, have wings in your deeds.


Cave canem!
Beware of dog!

Fortis cadere, cedere non potest.
The brave man can fall but not fail.

AESOP'S FABLES: I'll be pairing up fables from my old Mille Fabulae et Una book with a website where I've collected fable illustrations and English versions of the stories.

Vulpes et Pardus

Astrologus Stellas Contemplans

FREE BOOKS: These are books from my Freebookapalooza online book collection, which now contains over 1300 items:

... plus a special treat from the Latin LOLBaby blog:

Nullum magnum ingenium
sine mixtura dementiae fuit.
There was never any great genius
without some madness mixed in.
