The Very Small Candle
In ancient times people lighted their homes with lamps. The trunks of plants were used as candles. There was one particular candle which had taken up large quantity of thick oil and was feeling proud.
One day it declared before a large gathering that it is better than the sun, the moon, and the stars. All of a sudden, a gust of wind blew off the candle. The servant who lighted it said: “Shine now, friend candle! Better think before you speak. There is no wind strong enough to blow out the lights of heaven.”
