A story of the lion and an ass – Aesop’s Fables

An ass and a lion went to hunting together. Walking long distance they came near a cave. They understood that some goats were inside the cave.

The lion sat down in front of the cave. He would attack the goats. The ass entered in side the cave. He moaned there loudly. He also tried to disturb the goats. He put them out of the cave. The lion ate them one by one.

The ass told – “You should have praised my efforts. They came out from the cave for my bravery.”

With a smile the lion said – “Really, you have told the truth, I might have heard, if I did not know, that you are an ass.”

  1. Yo también soy muy exigente conmigo misma… y sin querer, también con los demás.Que cada uno nivele su nivel de exigencia estaría bien… pero me parece bastante difícil…Lo mejor: intenta ser más flexible… más que nada para evitar cogerte nervios! si puedes ;)Besitos!

  2. Ihanaa, kun tulee kesä ja grillikausi. Kerrostaloasujana pääsen grillailemaan vaan mökillä. Alkukesästä pitää kokeilla kaikkea: makkaraa, lihaa, kasviksia, halloumia ja ihania grillikastikkeita. Loppukesästä maistuu paremmin kevyemmät eväät: kala ja kasvikset. Halloumia grillaantuu joka kerta. Välillä grillataan myös banaaneja jälkkäriksi. Uusia vinkkejä voisi löytyä ihanan Paulin kirjasta :)-T-

  3. Serial, why is hoping for a more productive solution like a free lunch? If the purpose is to lower emissions and a better bill can do that more efficiently, why is it wrong to want the better bill? Mind you, I don’t know if there is one, but I’m pretty comfortable saying at least that W-M looks like an administrative debacle. I doubt the extra 1000 or so pages are meaningless and extra pages in legislation, where relevant, are almost always counterproductive.

  4. :*-( This really makes me angry. I didn’t understand how anyone could have done such horrible things to another human being in the first place… but to lower one’s self to behave as this sheriff has? Unbelievable! This is pure crap!

  6. Generalmente el transporte que tomo para trasladarme de Ciudad Universitaria a mi hogar en la Ciudad de México me ha dejado a medio camino porque los demás pasajeros se bajan mucho antes que yo; por lo que al operador de la unidad no le conviene llevar a un sólo psajero hasta el final de su ruta.Algunas veces nada más me cobran la tarifa correspondiente hasta el punto donde me dejan; otras ocaciones no me cobran -jejeje…-; pero me dejan por el rumbo del Estadio Azteca.Gracias al Demiurgo y a Chase por sus comentarios. Espero no sean los únicos.

  10. This thing is great for anyone who has shoulder sensitivity to recoil, great for those like me who had any rotator cuff surgeries. The felt recoil is much less than any other 12 semi I have used. Cosmetically not very attractive but she works every time I pull the trigger at the clays range. Shoot safe and gun safety depends on you.

  11. me a number of all the US mosque-trained bad boys, narc!Count up all the bad boys that come from those “80%” of US mosques.Don’t dribble out each name, narc, overwhelm me with the total.You do that and I’ll try to figure out if your number is more or less than 50% of the total devotees from the extremist 80%.

  12. B and E. Some of the phrases were very…Corny. And not something I’d imagine Sonic to say. Yet, after getting enough experience, he had gotten better at acting (I loved his chuckle).As it is, they are completely redoing Sonic…So a new voice would be a way to show what is “old” and what is “new”. So that’s why I also picked E.

  13.

  19. Julian has got himself a palestinian arab girlfriend, half his age,who wrote the story of the film, and Weinstein has got a beautiful English non-Jewish wife half his age.As they have no fears for their own children because they are not/will not be Jewish, they can be as Jew-hating as they like.But these things have a habit of rebounding.

  20. alberto I · domenica, 24 giugno 2012, 10:51 pmMa è proprio necessario definirsi cristiani,drusi,alwiti…Non si può essere di nessuna religione? Gli arabi sono ancoradov’era il cattolicesimo durante il medio evo?Non c’è proprio ragione di qualificarsi. Si può viverebenissimo ignorando tutti questi pazzi che si scannano perun dio inesistente.O solo per dire il mio dio è meglio del tuo.

  21. I do love the manner in which you have framed this particular situation and it really does offer me some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of just what I have observed, I basically trust as the actual comments pile on that people continue to be on point and don’t start on a soap box regarding some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this superb piece and even though I can not necessarily agree with the idea in totality, I regard the point of view.

  22. Låter helt galet! Håller med om att lagen är väldigt förlegad. Tur att, i just detta fall, så många redan har sett bilderna, delat dem och spridit dem för diskussion. Men det hjälper förstås inte kommande blogginlägg.

  23. Está claro que el juez actúa con los pies en la tierra y con "sentido común"El razonamiento es claro.Si el valor de tasación en su momento fue determinado ahora en el mercado libre ese valor ha descendido notablemente,cosa no achacable al hipotecado si no al mercado inmboliario.Además,como dices,el juez le pega un buen tirón de orejas a las entidades financieras al ponerlas en el punto de mira de unos de los aspectos desencadenantes de esta crisis.Ojalá en la apelación del Banco se encuentre el mismo sentido común.Saludos

  24. Interesting points Craigan123. You have to be careful to cut your 1″ fill / drain hole FULLY BELOW the top of the cans and hardware cloth so that you get a 1″ air gap below the soil. Its also really important to use a soil mix with a lot of vermiculite or other amendments that cause it to drain. I planted tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow squash and okra in my buckets. Once weather hit 90 and plants began to fruit I found I had to pull up a corner of the plastic and water from the top and bottom!

  25. IBPS just give minimum educational qualification details prior to CWE exam. It may or may not be followed by the banks. Banks have all the rights to change it. If IBPS mention it as 12th as minimum standard, Atleast 10 to 15 banks will allow you. There is no doubt about it. But we have to wait and see for the Upcoming IBPS clerk CWE 2012 notification for complete details. I cant say anything now. I can tell u after notification released only. Please wait for few weeks. I am expecting the notification after RRB results which are going to be released by this month end.

  26. Sucks. Looks like the tracks can only be downloaded within China, at least according to ting. I’ve been dying to hear and have this new record, but can’t get it. I wish that MM would update their emusic catalog, there are a least a half dozen releases that I’d love to purchase.

  31. The fact 2 people known to have Islamic terrorism connections were on board is suspicious, as well as the arrest of an Al-Queda operative in Brazil. Throw in the way the airplane broke up in the air, the white flash seen by another pilot and the bomb threats received and one would be foolish to dismiss terrorism as a cause.I also believe if evidence is found of a bomb they will do everything possible to play it down. Still, let's wait and see what the investigation reveals but remain vigilant.

  37. Wow…I’m amazed by the woman who thought she’d get a free pass.As for the writer, that’s youth. If she goes on to be a huge bestseller, good for her. I suspect she’ll pay her dues. I also wonder if she has staying power. This business feels like trudging through the mud at times.

  40. Cinzia65 scrive:Bell’articolo. Complimenti. Io non sono un’appassionata del giallo, inoltre ho una carnagione chiara che mal si addice con tale colore, ma devo dire che questo articolo mi ha stimolato la fantasia ed il desiderio di “osare”. Sì, osare un pò di giallo anche per noi “pellibianche” ! Partirò sicuramente con gli accessori e poi chissà…. spero che i tuoi suggerimenti mi indirizzino su buone spese.Grazie Ginger.

  41. Thank you for posting these, they’re so awesome. I love the last guy especially. I’m obsessed with YouTube for a variety of reasons but one of the best is that it gives marginalized people an opportunity to express ourselves and show what we can do, in ways that are rarely portrayed in the mainstream media.

  42. Obrigado pelo interessante texto.Ataturk cedo percebeu que a amplitude das ambições reformistas só conseguiria ser concretizada com a desejada rapidez sob um regime autoritário. Por isso, modernizou o país fazendo uso de repressão. Por isso, laicizou fazendo uso de repressão. Por isso, alterou a língua descartando tradições. Tudo isso é verdade. Mas, a meu ver, não diminui a dimensão e o mérito das suas reformas.Nunca o mundo islâmico viu tal ímpeto modernizador.
