Aesop
Greek poet and author, c. 600 B.C.

Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.

c. 500 B.C. - from "The Buffoon and the Countrymen" in Aesop's Fables
Yield to all and you will soon have nothing to yield.

c. 500 B.C. - from "The Man and His Two Wives" in Aesop's Fables
Those who voluntarily put power into the hands of a tyrant or an enemy, must not wonder if it be at last turned against themselves.
