Aesop - Who Was Aesop?

Aesops' Fables are ancient - it's said Socrates re-wrote them in verse as he was awaiting his executions. Some say Aesop was a Greek slave who gained his freedom from his last owner due to his gifted logia or moral story telling. Many phrases have entered our every day speech from Aesop's Fables.  Have you heard some of these? 
  • She's just being a "Dog in a Manger"
  • "Slow and steady wins the reace"
  • Watch out - He's a "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing"
  • "Don't Count Your Chickens Before Theyr'e Hatched"
Originally these cautionary tales were not written for children, but due to their short length, and use of animals they became teaching tools for children.
