Life Lesson #8

Library of Congress an Aesop Fable

The Two Goats

Two Goats, frisking gayly on the rocky steeps of a mountain valley, chanced to meet, one on each side of a deep chasm through which poured a mighty mountain torrent. The trunk of a fallen tree formed the only means of crossing the chasm, and on this not even two squirrels could have passed each other in safety. The narrow path would have made the bravest tremble. Not so our Goats. Their pride would not permit either to stand aside for the other.

One set her foot on the log. The other did likewise. In the middle they met horn to horn. Neither would give way, and so they both fell, to be swept away by the roaring torrent below.

It is better to yield than to come to misfortune through stubbornness.

Decisions always have consequences. Your decisions should be as those of a master carpenter, measure twice, cut once.

Remember! Follows and likes keep beans on the table. Thank you all for your support.

  1. May I just say what a relief to discover a person that genuinely understands
    what they’re discussing online. You certainly realize
    how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people really need to
    look at this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you are not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.
