     The Ass Carrying Image


Once an Ass carried a famous wooden Image through the streets of a city that have to be placed in one of its Temples.

 As he passed along, the crowd bowed before the Image.

The Ass, thinking that they bowed their heads in token of respect for himself, bristled up with pride, gave himself airs, and refused to move another step.

 The driver, seeing him thus stop, laid his whip lustily about his shoulders and said, "O you perverse dull-head! it is not yet come to this, that men pay worship to an Ass."

They are not wise who give to themselves the credit due to others.
