The Two Crabs

: Aesop's Fables

One fine day two Crabs came out from their home to take a

stroll on the sand. "Child," said the mother, "you are walking

very ungracefully. You should accustom yourself, to walking

straight forward without twisting from side to side."

"Pray, mother," said the young one, "do but set the example

yourself, and I will follow you."

Example is the best precept.
