He who placeth confidence in an enemy, either from inclination or necessity, awaketh from his delusion, like one who hath fallen from the top of a tree in his sleep !

"Fables and proverbs from the Sanskrit : being the Hitopadésa"

DSCF2125

‘ Fortitude in adversity, and moderation in pros- perity ; eloquence in the senate, and courage in the field; great glory in renown, and labour in study; are the natural perfections of great minds.’
