THE LION AND THE ASS
ONE day as the Lion walked
proudly down a forest aisle, and
the animals respectfully made
way for him, an Ass brayed a
scornful remark as he passed.
The Lion felt a flash of anger.
But when he turned his head and
saw who had spoken, he walked
quietly on. He would not honor
the fool with even so much as a
stroke of his claws.
Do not resent the remarks of a fool. Ignore them.
