Last Boast.

Aesop’s Fables :Last Boast.


A fir tree said boastingly to the bramble bush growing in its shade:

“You are useless. Nobody wants you. I am everywhere used for roofs and houses. Men can’t do without me.”

“You’re so right,” said the bramble. “Here’s a man coming to you with an axe, right now. Farewell.”

Moral: Pride comes before a fall.
