Fable Aesop
The Seagull And The Kite
printer friendly version
A Seagull having bolted down too large a fish, burst its deep
gullet-bag and lay down on the shore to die. A Kite saw him
and exclaimed: "You richly deserve your fate; for a bird of the
air has no business to seek its food from the sea."

Every man should be content to mind his own business.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
