     The Cock and the Pearl

There was a cock who was once roaming up and down the farmyard among the hens when suddenly he saw something shinning amid the straw.

 "Ho! ho!" quote he, "that's for me," and soon rooted it out from beneath the straw. What did it turn out to be but a Pearl that by some chance had been lost in the yard? "You may be a treasure," quote Master Cock, "to men that prize you, but for me I would rather have a single barley-corn than a peck of pearls."

Moral: Precious things are for those that can prize them.
