The Man and the Lion

A MAN and a Lion traveled together through the forest. They soon

began to boast of their respective superiority to each other in

strength and prowess. As they were disputing, they passed a

statue carved in stone, which represented "a Lion strangled by a

Man." The traveler pointed to it and said: "See there! How strong

we are, and how we prevail over even the king of beasts." The

Lion replied: "This statue was made by one of you men. If we

Lions knew how to erect statues, you would see the Man placed

under the paw of the Lion."

One story is good, till another is told.
