Please include some of the fables found in the legends of Indian Sub-continent. Cultural diversity is perhaps much diverse in this part of globe. India, especially is a rich treasure of fables.

  • This esop. Whole fables would be too much to include on any page and should be in a sister prjoect like Wikisource. Will Beback 01:21, 8 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]


The complete (extent) works of Aesop are known. The fables are the entirety of his works. So if a quotation isn't in one of his fables it is probably misattributed. Since the language is usally fairly simple, it should be possible to search across many translations. Will Beback 01:21, 8 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]


  • It is with our passions, as it is with fire and water, they are good servants but bad masters.
  • The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
  • We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
  • What a splendid head, yet no brain.
  • Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten.
  • United we stand, divided we fall.
