The Lamp





A LAMP, soaked with too much oil and flaring brightly, boasted

that it gave more light than the sun. Then a sudden puff of wind

arose, and the Lamp was immediately extinguished. Its owner lit

it again, and said: "Boast no more, but henceforth be content to

give thy light in silence. Know that not even the stars need to

be relit"
