Fable Aesop
Truth and the Traveler
printer friendly version
A wayfaring man, traveling in the desert, met a woman standing
alone and terribly dejected. He inquired of her, "Who art thou?"

"My name is Truth," she replied.

"And for what cause," he asked, "have you left the city to dwell
alone here in the wilderness?"

She made answer, "Because in former times, falsehood was
with few, but it is now with all men."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
