Aesop’s Fables

The Ass in the Lions Skin

An Ass, having put on a Lion’s skin, roamed about in the forest and amused himself by frightening all of the foolish animals he met in his wanderings.  At last, coming upon a Fox, he tried to frighten him also, but the Fox no sooner heard the sound of his voice then he exclaimed, “I might have possibly been frightened myself, if I had not heard your bray.”


Clothes may disguise a fool, but his words will give him away.
