1. The Lion and the Dog. A dog runs into a lion and jokes, "You wretched creature, worn out with hunger, why do you run through the woods and byways? Look at me, fat and shining, and I obtain these things not by working, but while taking it easy." Then the lion replied, "You indeed have your feasts, but you foolsihly have your chains also. Be a servant, you who are able to serve; in any case I am free, and I will not be a servant."
