116 - The Camel and Jupiter



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.


The envy is not a good adviser. When you want to improve in something, do it with your effort and for your desire to progress, not because your neighbor has it.
