THE FOX AND THE LION
A VERY young Fox, who had
never before seen a Lion, happened to meet one in the forest.
A single look was enough to send
the Fox off at top speed for the
nearest hiding place.
The second time the Fox saw
the Lion he stopped behind a tree
to look at him a moment before
slinking away. But the third
time, the Fox went boldly up to
the Lion and, without turning a
hair, said, "Hello, there, old top."
Familiarity breeds contempt.
Acquaintance with evil blinds us to its dangers.
