The Oxen and the Axle-Trees

Aesop


A HEAVY WAGON was being dragged along a country lane by a team of Oxen. The Axle-trees groaned and creaked terribly; whereupon the Oxen, turning round, thus addressed the wheels: "Hullo there! why do you make so much noise? We bear all the labor, and we, not you, ought to cry out."

Those who suffer most cry out the least.

Quote of the moment:
You know it's a bad morning when you get up out of bed and miss the floor.
