|78. The Two Pots|
A River carried down in its stream two Pots, one
made of earthenware, and the other of brass. The Earthen Pot said to the Brass Pot, "Pray keep at a distance, and do not come near me; for if you touch me ever so slightly, I shall be broken in pieces; and besides, I by no means wish to
come near you."
Equals make the best friends.
