Fable Aesop
The Camel And Jupiter
printer friendly version
The Camel, when he saw the Bull adorned with horns, envied
him and wished that he himself could obtain the same honors.
He went to Jupiter, and besought him to give him horns.

Jupiter, vexed at his request because he was not satisfied with
his size and strength of body, and desired yet more, not only
refused to give him horns, but even deprived him of a portion
of his ears.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
