Aesop's fables - The Cock and the Pearl

Post by spring_phan on Sun Apr 05, 2009 4:21 pm

There is a series of short Aesop's fables that I will try to post to this forum everyday. Hope that you can enjoy reading them Smile
This is his first fable.

A cock was once strutting up and down the farmyard among the hens when suddenly he espied something shinning amid the straw. "Ho! ho!" quoth he, "that's for me," and soon rooted it out from beneath the straw. What did it turn out to be but a Pearl that by some chance had been lost in the yard?
"You may be a treasure," quoth Master Cock, "to men that prize you, but for me I would rather have a single barley-corn than a peck of pearls." Precious things are for those that can prize them.

Have a very beautiful Sunday!
Best wishes to all of you.

yeah, I quite agree with the Master Cock. something may be important to someone but not to others. I think it is really important to know what are important to ourselve.

Personally, I hope it is a good way for us to relax, read something 'enjoyable and meaningful' geek and widen our vocabulary store.
I totally agree with Tieu Long Nu that everyone has different attitudes towards life.
Let's read another fable hén Smile
