A Tale of a Bull and a Gnat

Aesop’s fables 6

A Gnat flew across the field, making a rather loud buzzing sound for such a little creature, and it landed on the tip of one of the Bull’s horns. Following a brief period of relaxation, he then completed his preparations to depart by flight. However, before he went, he pleaded for forgiveness from the Bull for having rested on his horn.

He said, “You must be extremely delighted to have me depart now,” as his exit statement.

The Bull said, “It makes no difference to me in the slightest.” “I had no idea you were even in the room with me.”

Many times, the value we place on ourselves is greater than the value placed on us by others. Egoism is proportional to the degree to which one’s thinking is limited.
