Thank you for sharing Aesop's Fables. I cut my teeth on them and appropriated wisdom and solemnity because of Aesop.

I have found a similar vein in John Bunyan's stories for children. I highly recommend "The Spider and The Sinner."

I truly enjoyed this . . .
Bypassing the wisdom of these fables would make you Asap indeed. Thanks for the delightful read.

This was so well written and well done. I really smiled and enjoyed the complexity of the story which truly hit its mark.

I also recalled with misty-eyes how much I enjoyed his tales. My dad bought me books all the time, and Aesop along with Hans Christian Anderson were my favorites. I loved the Lion and the Mouse!

Anyhow...great story!

God bless~

This is a great reminder of the value of Aesop's Fables and the lessons they aim to teach. Interesting to hear of some that I haven't actually read. Very well written.

Nice job here, and thank you for introducing me to "prised". I first assumed you mistyped an "s" into pried. :)

Great article.

I am currently taking a philosophy class which is scrambling my brain.
I much prefer Aesop's fables and the timeless lessons they teach.
Thanks for highlighting these precious few.
