THE FOX AND THE LION

A Fox who had never seen a Lion met one by chance, and upon first catching sight of him was frightened almost to death; the next time he happened on him he was frightened, to be sure, but not so much as before; when he saw him a third [12] time, he plucked up courage enough to go up and speak to him.

The story teaches that familiarity makes terrible things much less frightful.
