Image: Turbo et Puer


M0756 - M0757 - M0758

757. Turbo et Puer. Puer, dum turbinem exercet verbere torto, "Cur te pulsare cogor," inquit, "ut motu idoneo agitere?" Turbo respondet, "Statim iners iacerem, nisi plagae animos darent." Multis necesse est vexari ne torpeant.



M0757 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 4.27 (adapted into prose). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Desbillons cites Regnerius as his source. Compare the story of the lazy boy, #968.
