Fable Aesop
The Cock And The Jewel
printer friendly version
A Cock, scratching for food for himself and his hens, found a
precious stone and exclaimed: "If your owner had found thee,
and not I, he would have taken thee up, and have set thee in thy
first estate; but I have found thee for no purpose. I would rather
have one barleycorn than all the jewels in the world."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
