Lesson

A Lion, a Heifer, a Goat, and a Sheep once agreed to share whatever each might catch in hunting. A fine fat stag fell into a snare set by the Goat, who thereupon called the rest together. The Lion divided the stag into four parts. Taking the best piece for himself, he said, “This is mine of course, as I am the Lion;” taking another portion, he added, “This too is mine by right — the right, if you must know, of the strongest.” Further, putting aside the third piece,” That’s for the most valiant,” said he; “and as for the remaining part, touch it if you dare.”
