The Ass and His Driver
An Ass was once trudging up the edge of a steep hill with his Master.
Suddenly the animal left the Master's side and bolted off the road. He wanted to throw himself over the cliff!
The Master caught him by the tail just has he was about to fall over. "Let me go!" brayed the Ass, straining forward, "Let me go!"
The owner could not do anything but let the Ass go. He couldn't figure out why he wanted to jump off the edge either.
So he released the stubborn animal, saying, "Do what you want, but at your own cost."
Don't be too stubborn in wanting your own foolish way.
