All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable.
— Walt Disney

It is a myth, not a mandate, a fable not a logic, and symbol rather than a reason by which men are moved.
Irwin Edman fable quote

Did universal charity prevail, earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable.
— Charles Caleb Colton

Fable is more historical than fact, because fact tells us about one man and fable tells us about a million men.
— G. K. Chesterton

Rapidity does not always mean progress, and hurry is akin to waste. The old fable of the hare and the tortoise is just as good now, and just as true, as when it was first written.
— fable quotation by Charles A. Stoddard
