Fable Number 397 ~ The Sheep, the Goat, and the Sow

A man rounded up a sow, a goat, and a sheep from his farm. While the donkey carried them all to the city, the goat and the sheep settled down quietly, but the sow's screams bothered their chauffeur, so the donkey said to the sow, "Why on earth can't you go along quietly like the others?" The sow replied, "The goat is being brought here for her milk, the sheep for his wool, but for me this is a matter of life and death!"

Moral: Each man has his own reason for acting as he does.
