The Lion and the Three Bulls

Moral: Union is strength.
Three Bulls for a long time pastured together. A Lion lay in ambush in the hope of making them his prey, but was afraid to attack them while they kept together.

The Dogs and the Fox

Moral: It is easy to kick a man that is down.
Some Dogs, finding the skin of a lion, began to tear it in pieces with their teeth. A Fox, seeing them, said, “If this lion were alive, you would soon find out that his claws were stronger than your teeth.”

The Lark Burying Her Father

Moral: Youth’s first duty is reverence to parents.
The Lark (according to an ancient legend) was created before the earth itself, and when her father died, as there was no earth, she could find no place of burial for him.

The Cat and Venus

Moral: Nature exceeds nurture.
A Cat fell in love with a handsome young man, and entreated Venus to change her into the form of a woman. Venus consented to her request and transformed her into a beautiful damsel, so that the youth saw her and loved her, and took her home as his bride.
