    The Boasting Traveler

There was a Man who had traveled in foreign lands and was boasted very much, on returning to his own country, he told about  many wonderful and heroic stunts he had performed in the different places he had visited.

 Among other things, he said that when he was at Rhodes he had dived to such a distance that no man of his day could dive anywhere near him as to that, there were in Rhodes many persons who saw him do it and whom he could call as witnesses.

 One of the man standing nearby interrupted him, saying: "Now, my good man, if this be all true there is no need of witnesses. You suppose this to be Rhodes, and dive for us."
