The Donkey in the Lion’s Skin

Posted on: December 9, 2012


 Donkeys are known to be silly and brainless. Though they carry heavy loads and are a great help for human beings. Their voice is horrifying, so, when they bray, people desire to bring to an end. Once, a donkey while going through a forest with its master saw a lion’s skin lying under a tree.  Some hunters may have forgotten to take it with them.

One day the donkey in secret went to the same place where he had seen the lion’s skin. He was happy to see it there. He put it on.  He felt very proud thinking himself like a real King.

He walked around the Jungle frightening all the foolish animals in this disguise.   

On the way he saw a fox. He tried to frighten him too, but, in his delight he opened his mouth and brayed in triumph.

   The fox that was running in fright recognized the donkey’s voice.  Hence it stopped suddenly and laughingly said: “If you really want to frighten me you have to snarl like the lion too. Your braying exposed you.”


Moral of the Story:

Fine clothes may disguise a fool, but silly words will give him away.

disguise may work for a while but sooner or later it gives away. so better not waste time on it.


It’s similar to people that lie …and get away with it…but sooner or later the lie catches up to them or their arrogance gets in the way.


I love this post…but I must say, I do love donkeys too. Great moral and beautifully written. Jen


Nice post and nice lesson. 🙂

i will say “Be original Be classy” 😉
