Aesop's Fables

The Lamp

A Lamp, well filled with oil, burned with a clear and steady light, and began to swell with pride and boast that it shone more brightly than the sun himself.
      
      Just then a puff of wind came and blew it out.
      
      Some one struck a match and lit it again.
      
      The one who lit the candle said, "You just keep alight, and never mind the sun. Why, even the stars never need to be relit as you had to be just now."
