Mid Week Quote: Phaedrus

Hello everyone.

I hope everyone is well and not succumbing to the coughs and colds that seem to be lurking everywhere.

This weeks quote is by Gaius Julius Phaedrus who was a Roman fabulist and Latin author. He is best known for translating entire books of fables into Latin, including Aesop’s Fables. 


“Things are not always what they seem.”

Phaedrus Fables, Book IV c. 50 CE


Happy reading.
