Latin Proverbs and Fables Round-Up: July 10

Here is a round-up of today's proverbs and fables. I also finished another of the "Tiny Tales" books! After Tiny Tales of Nasruddin, I moved on to Tiny Tales from India; you can get the free ebook and free audiobook at

I'm working on an Aesop book next (in English)... and if you're curious about this quick-and-easy self-publishing, I've written up some notes here: Documenting the Tiny Tales Project.

HODIE: ante diem sextum Idus Iulias

Quis famulus amantior domini
quam canis?
What household servant is more loving
than a dog?

Dilige sic alios, ut sis tibi carus amicus;
Sic bonus esto bonis, ne te mala damna sequantur.

Sciens cavebo.
Being aware, I will take care.

A deo rex, a rege lex.
From God, the king; from the king, the law.
