Yield to all and you will soon have nothing to yield

Hi Teachers,

I have read Aesop’s fable and come up with a question about its moral
[color=blue]Yield to all and you will soon have nothing to yield.

What does it exactly mean?


Hi Jupiter

Basically it means: If you always give everyone everything they want, you will soon have nothing left to give.



Dear Amy

Is it a proverb?


Hi Tom

I’d been wondering where you were. :lol: Welcome back.

A proverb? I think there are varying definitions of what a proverb is. Personally, I would call it a proverb. I’m just not sure that everyone would agree.

The sentence is the moral of one of Aesop’s fables and of course Aesop and his fables are well-known. I doubt that this particular saying is so well-known that it would be considered to be in “regular or everyday use”.
