Fable Aesop
The Rivers And The Sea
printer friendly version
The Rivers joined together to complain to the Sea, saying, "Why is
it that when we flow into your tides so potable and sweet, you
work in us such a change, and make us salty and unfit to drink?"
The Sea, perceiving that they intended to throw the blame on him,
said, "Pray cease to flow into me, and then you will not be made briny."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
