AESOP'S  FABLES            


169 - The Widow and her little Maidens



A widow who was fond of cleaning had two little maidens to wait on her. 

She was in the habit of waking them early in the morning, at cockcrow. 

The maidens, aggravated by such excessive labor, resolved to kill the cock who roused their mistress so early. 

When they had done this, they found that they had only prepared for themselves greater troubles, for their mistress, no longer hearing the hour from the cock, woke them up to their work in the middle of the night.

Never believe that the cause of your problems is the first thing you have before your eyes. Think about what would happen if you eliminate the thing that wrongly you think is the possible cause.
