The Lion and The Statue
A brave young man and a lion were discussing the relative strength of men and lions in general. The young man boasted that he and his fellows were stronger than lions by reason of their greater intelligence. "Come now with me," he cried, "and I will soon prove that I am right." So he took the lion into the town square and showed him a statue of Hercules overcoming the lion by brute force. "That is all very well," said the Lion, "but it proves nothing, for it was a man who made the statue."
