141 - The Bat and the Goldfinch



A goldfinch that was caught and put inside a cage that was hung on a window, was singing only at night. A bat heard his voice from the distance, and approaching to the cage, he asked him why he was singing only at night.

"It is not without reason - he replied - because it was during daytime, when I was singing, that they caught me, but since then I learned to be prudent."

"It is not now when you have to be prudent, since you are already a prisoner, but you must have been prudent before they captured you! - answered the bat."

The prudence is to be used before falling down in the error, not after the misfortune.
