Here is a round-up of today's proverbs and fables. You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you might prefer to subscribe by email.

Also, Kate Gladstone sent me this fascinating item: Hip Hop and Christian Conversion Narratives (yes, Latin is involved!).

HODIE: ante diem quintum Idus Februarias

Tuta est testudo collecta in tegmen suum.
Safe is the turtle inside her shell.

Cui scieris non esse parem, pro tempore cede:
Victorem a victo superari saepe videmus.

Non omne dulce bonum.
Not every sweet thing is a good thing.

Voluptas malorum mater omnium.
Pleasure is the mother of all evils.
