The Fox and the Tiger
An Archer, hunting in the woods, was so successful with his arrows that he killed many of the wild animals. This frightened the rest so much that they ran into the densest part of the bushes to hide. At last the Tiger stood up, and pretending to be very brave, told the other animals not to be afraid anymore, but to rely on his courage, and he would attack the enemy on his own. While he was talking, and lashing his tail and tearing at the ground with his claws to impress the others, an arrow came and pierced his ribs. The Tiger howled with pain.
While he was trying to draw out the arrow with his teeth the Fox went up to him and asked, in surprise, whoever had the strength and courage to wound such a brave and mighty beast as the Tiger?
"Nay," said the Tiger, "I misjudged my enemy. It was that unbeatable man over there!"
This story tell us: knowledge is power.
A Fox and a crow
A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree.
"That's for me, as I am a Fox," said Master Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the tree.
"Good day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eyes. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds."
The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox. "That will do," said he. "That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: "Do not trust flatterers."
有一次，一只狐狸看到一只乌鸦嘴里叼着一块乳酪飞落在一个树枝上。 “那乳酪是给我的,因为我是一只狐狸,” 狐狸说着,走到树脚下.
“你好,乌鸦夫人”, 狐狸喊道,”你今天真好看, 看你的羽毛是多么光亮啊, 你的眼睛多么有神啊, 我觉得你的声音肯定也是所有鸟之中最好听的, 你的样子是那样的出众, 让我听听您的歌声吧,那怕只唱一首, 我以后都会称你为鸟中的皇后”。乌鸦骄傲地仰起了头， 准备放声歌唱，但当它一张开嘴，那块乳酪就掉到了地上，马上就被狐狸叼走了。
