Aesop's Fables

The Pack Ass And The Wild Ass

A wild ass, who was wandering idly about, one day came upon a Pack Ass lying at full length in a sunny spot and thoroughly enjoying himself.
      
      Going up to him, he said, "What a lucky beast you are! Your sleek coat shows how well you live: how I envy you!"
      
      Not long after the Wild Ass saw his acquaintance again, but this time he was carrying a heavy load, and his driver was following behind and beating him with a thick stick.
      
      "Ah, my friend," said the Wild Ass, "I don't envy you any more: for I see you pay dear for your comforts."

Moral: Advantages that are dearly bought are doubtful blessings.
