Aesop's fable

​Lesson 51

 Mistress and Servant








A widow, thrifty and industrious, her requirements for the two servants are also quite strict. Whenever the roosters crow, the old woman calls them up to work, and does not let them sleep any longer. The servants did not like to get up so early, especially in winter, and thought they could sleep a little longer if the rooster hadn't woken the mistress so early. So they let go of the cock. However, they did not expect more serious consequences. The hostess couldn't hear the roosters, but woke them up earlier than usual and let them go to work in the middle of the night.


【Meaning of Mistress and Servant】


The fable of the hostess and the servant tells us that we must be down-to-earth in everything we do, and don't try to be clever.
