The Man and the Lion
Posted October 6, 2012on:
Long time back a man and a lion met on the roadway. For some distance they traveled quiet happily. But the friendly chat turned serious whenboth tried to prove them superior over each other.
The debate grew hot. While going they saw a statue (an image made of wood or stone) which showed Hercules killing a lion by gripping his throat tightly.
“See there!” said the man. “That statue proves that I am right. This is the stronger proof of a man’s superiority over a lion.”
“That does not prove a thing” replied the lion. “If the lions were the sculptures (the man who make figures by carving wood or stone) then every statue would show a lion standing over a man!”
