A River carried down in its stream two Pots, one made of
earthenware and the other of brass. The Earthen Pot said to
the Brass Pot, "Pray keep at a distance and do not come near
me, for if you touch me ever so slightly, I shall be broken in
pieces, and besides, I by no means wish to come near you."

Equals make the best friends.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
