The Fox and the Grapes

One afternoon a fox was walking through the forest and spotted a bunch of grapes hanging from over a lofty branch.

“Just the thing to quench my thirst,” he thought. Taking a few steps back, the fox jumped and just missed the hanging grapes. Again the fox took a few paces back and tried to reach them but still failed.

Finally, giving up, the fox turned up his nose and said, “They’re probably sour anyway,” and proceeded to walk away.

Moral: It’s easy to despise what you cannot have.

This is an example of attacking the person instead of the issue at hand because how did the fox know without tasting a single grape from the vine that it was probably sour?

If the adjectives and the verbs were underlined it would be good. But I love the story.
