The Lioness

posted in Lion |

A controversy prevailed among the beasts of the field as to which of the animals deserved the most credit for producing the greatest number of children at a birth.

The animals rushed clamorously into the presence of the Lioness and demanded from her the settlement of the dispute.

“And you,” they said, “how many children do you give birth to at one time?”

The Lioness laughed at them, and said: “Why! I have only one; but that one is a thoroughbred Lion.”

Moral: It is quality, not quantity that counts.
