Fable Friday: The Dove and the Crow

Fable1The Dove and the Crow.

A Dove shut up in a cage was boasting of the large number of the young ones which she had hatched. A Crow, hearing her, said: “My good friend, cease from this unreasonable boasting. The larger the number of your family, the greater your cause of sorrow, in seeing them shut up in this prison-house.”

Moral of Aesops Fable: To enjoy our blessings we must have freedom.
