Fable Aesop
The Dove And The Crow
printer friendly version
A Dove shut up in a cage was boasting of the large number of
young ones which she had hatched. A Crow hearing her, said:
"My good friend, cease from this unseasonable boasting. The
larger the number of your family, the greater your cause of
sorrow, in seeing them shut up in this prison-house."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
