The Lion and The Mouse

A Mouse running over his face awakened a Lion from sleep. Rising up angrily, he caught him and was about to kill him. Then the Mouse piteously entreated, saying:

“If you would only spare my life, I would be sure to repay your kindness.” The Lion laughed at him but allowed him go. It happened shortly after this that some hunters, who bound him by strong ropes to the ground, caught the Lion. The Mouse, recognizing his roar, came and gnawed the rope with his teeth, and set him free, exclaiming:

“You ridiculed the idea of my ever being able to help you, never expecting to receive from me any repayment of your favor,  Now you know that it is possible for even a Mouse to confer benefits on a Lion.”

Moral: It is possible for even a Mouse to confer benefits on a Lion.

This story is very good. I like it as it is a very helpful story.I liked the mouse very much because even tough the lion caught it but still it went to rescue the lion.For us if somebody does anything we get angry and next time when they are in need we dont help them.That is why it is always said that animals have more sense then we have . Tat is why we say we are worst than animals because we are the one who intend to rape,kill etc and do many things.

kaya wag kang mag aalangan tumulong sa ibang tao, dahil darating ang oras na baka mangailangan ka din ng tulong na manggagaling sa kanya.
