The Seagull and the Kite

: Aesop's Fables

A SEAGULL having bolted down too large a fish, burst its deep

gullet-bag and lay down on the shore to die. A Kite saw him and

exclaimed: "You richly deserve your fate; for a bird of the air

has no business to seek its food from the sea."

Every man should be content to mind his own business.
