Fable Aesop
The Gnat And The Bull
printer friendly version
A Gnat settled on the horn of a Bull, and sat there a long time.
Just as he was about to fly off, he made a buzzing noise, and
inquired of the Bull if he would like him to go. The Bull replied,
"I did not know you had come, and I shall not miss you when
you go away."

Some men are of more consequence in their own eyes than
in the eyes of their neighbors.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
