AN ASS besought a Horse to spare him a small portion of his feed.
“Yes,” said the Horse; “if any remains out of what I am now
eating I will give it you for the sake of my own superior
dignity, and if you will come when I reach my own stall in the
evening, I will give you a little sack full of barley.” The Ass
replied, “Thank you. But I can’t think that you, who refuse me a
little matter now. will by and by confer on me a greater
benefit.”

Truth and the Traveler

A WAYFARING MAN, traveling in the desert, met a woman standing
alone and terribly dejected. He inquired of her, “Who art thou?”
“My name is Truth,” she replied. “And for what cause,” he asked,
“have you left the city to dwell alone here in the wilderness?”
She made answer, “Because in former times, falsehood was with
few, but is now with all men.”
