Note Translated by George Fyler Townsend


“A PEACOCK spreading its gorgeous tail mocked a Crane that passed by, ridiculing the ashen hue of its plumage and saying, «I am robed, like a king, in gold and purple and all the colors of the rainbow; while you have not a bit of color on your wings.» «True,» replied the Crane; «but I soar to the heights of heaven and lift up my voice to the stars, while you walk below, like a cock, among the birds of the dunghill.»
Fine feathers don't make fine birds.
The Fox and the Hedgehog A FOX swimming across a rapid river was carried by the force of the current into a very deep ravine, where he lay for a long time very much bruised, sick, and unable to move.” source
