Fable Aesop
The Pomegranate, Apple-Tree, And Bramble
printer friendly version
The Pomegranate and Apple-Tree disputed as to which was
the most beautiful. When their strife was at its height, a Bramble
from the neighboring hedge lifted up its voice, and said in a
boastful tone: "Pray, my dear friends, in my presence at least
cease from such vain disputings."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
