Aesop Fables, Books

The Lion and The Eagle

Happy Wednesday, people! A new fable for a new day.

April’s arriving and on every April 1st, we celebrate fool’s day. Have you ever noticed that people who trust the practical jokes and hoaxes blindly become the fools?

Here’s a fable by Aesop to tell us, when to trust…

AN EAGLE stayed his flight and entreated a Lion to make an alliance with him to their mutual advantage. The Lion replied, “I have no objection, but you must excuse me for requiring you to find surety for your good faith, for how can I trust anyone as a friend who is able to fly away from his bargain whenever he pleases?’

Moral of the Story: “Try before you trust.”

Do you know any other story with same moral?
