The Fox and the Leopard
The Fox and the Leopard had a contest one day on who was the more beautiful of the two. The Leopard pointed out his spots to the Fox one by one. Slowly following them over his skin, he said, “Can you show off such spots?”
The Fox was not impressed, but he said, “You are beautiful. But do you know that my beauty is not outwards? I am gifted in cleverness and wiles. And that certainly makes me more attractive than you.”
The Leopard was speechless, and quietly walked away.
