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.
