The Oxen and the Axle-Trees

A HEAVY WAGON was being dragged along a country lane by a team of

Oxen. The Axle-trees groaned and creaked terribly; whereupon the

Oxen, turning round, thus addressed the wheels: "Hullo there! why

do you make so much noise? We bear all the labor, and we, not

you, ought to cry out."

Those who suffer most cry out the least.
