The Gnat and the Bull

: Aesop's Fables

A GNAT settled on the horn of a Bull, and sat there a long time.

Just as he was about to fly off, he made a buzzing noise, and

inquired of the Bull if he would like him to go. The Bull

replied, "I did not know you had come, and I shall not miss you

when you go away."

Some men are of more consequence in their own eyes than in the

eyes of their neighbors.
