The Lion, the Fox, and the Star

A young lion and a young fox once went out together for an evening stroll. Venus, the evening star, had just risen.The fox said, "Ah, how I wish I could go to the star and play with it!"

The lion said, "Ah, how I wish the star would come here and play with me!"

An owl, who had heard their words from a neighbouring tree, said, "The character of each is known by his words!"
