THE LION, THE COW, THE SHE-GOAT AND THE SHEEP

An alliance made with the high and mighty can never be trusted.

This little fable proves my point.

A cow and a she-goat and a long-suffering sheep decided to become the lion’s companions. They went into the forest together and there they caught an extremely large stag which they divided into four portions. Then the lion said, ‘I claim the first portion by right of my title, since I am called the king; the second portion you will give me as your partner; then, because I am strongest, the third portion is mine … and woe betide anyone who dares to touch the fourth!’ In this way the wicked lion carried off all the spoils for himself.

The Lion, the Fox, and the Ass

I often think not to blog general stuff to my blog where IT stuff is blogged, also i figured out that not to keep separate blog for occasional blogging of other stuffs.

well back to the subject…

The Lion, the Fox and the Ass entered into an agreement to assist each other in the chase. Having secured a large booty, the Lion on their return from the forest asked the Ass to allot his due portion to each of the three partners in the treaty. The Ass carefully divided the spoil into three equal shares and modestly requested the two others to make the first choice. The Lion, bursting out into a great rage, devoured the Ass. Then he requested the Fox to do him the favor to make a division. The Fox accumulated all that they had killed into one large heap and left to himself the smallest possible morsel. The Lion said, “Who has taught you, my very excellent fellow, the art of division? You are perfect to a fraction. He replied, “I learned it from the Ass, by witnessing his fate.

Happy is he/she who learns from the misfortunes of others.
