The Chicken and the Jewel

posted in Chicken |

A Chicken, scratching for food for himself and his hens, found a precious stone and exclaimed:

“If your owner had found you, and not I, he would have taken you up, and set you in fine gold. But I have found you for no purpose. I would rather have one grain of wheat than all the jewels in the world.”

Moral: One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
