The Fawn and His Mother

an Aeosop Fable:

A young fawn once said to his Mother, “You are larger than a dog, and swifter, and more used to running, and you have your horns as a defense; why, then, O Mother! do the hounds frighten you so? ” She smiled, and said: “I know full well, my son, that all you say is true. I have the advantages you mention, but when I hear even the bark of a single dog I feel ready to faint, and fly away as fast as I can.”

No arguments will give courage to the coward.

  1. In a world where one wild dog barking could mean a pretty gruesome death running isn’t all that surprising. On the other hand, being a coward isn’t a good thing either otherwise the bullies chase you around a lot.
