A Lamp, soaked with too much oil and flaring brightly, boasted
that it gave more light than the sun. Then a sudden puff of
wind arose, and the Lamp was immediately extinguished. Its
owner lit it again, and said: "Boast no more, but henceforth be
content to give thy light in silence. Know that not even the stars
need to be relit."
(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
