Fable Aesop
The Goat And The Goatherd
printer friendly version
A Goatherd had sought to bring back a stray goat to his flock.
He whistled and sounded his horn in vain; the straggler paid
no attention to the summons. At last the Goatherd threw a
stone, and breaking its horn, begged the Goat not to tell his
master. The Goat replied, "Why, you silly fellow, the horn will
speak though I be silent." Do not attempt to hide things
which cannot be hid.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
