Aesop (or the legend of such a man) has survived for centuries without a shred of real evidence regarding his actual life. Nobody knows anything about Aesop to be fact; mainly what we continue to carry of this legacy is nothing more than word of mouth, handed down for generations. (In itself, this is amazing!)
I feel strange quoting someone who may not have even existed, but the words are there despite any argument surrounding Aesop, himself.
He was supposedly a hideously ugly slave who could not even speak upon the beginning of his becoming a fabulist. He was given the gift of storytelling from a priestess of Isis, after doing a nice deed for her out of kindness. Apparently, there was no stopping him after that, and the rest is history. Either way, the wisdom attributed to him are profound and worth passing on, in my opinion.
“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century: • Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others; • Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected; • Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it; • Refusing to set aside trivial preferences; • Neglecting development and refinement of the mind; • Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
