The Tortoise and the Eagle

posted in Eagle, Tortoise |

A Tortoise, lazily basking in the sun, complained to the sea-birds of her hard fate, that no one would teach her to fly.

An Eagle, hovering near, heard her lamentation and asked what reward she would give him if he would take her aloft and float her in the air.

“I will give you,” the Tortoise said, “all the riches of the Red Sea.”

“I will teach you to fly then,” said the Eagle; and taking her up in his talons he carried the Tortoise almost to the clouds.

Suddenly the Eagle let the Tortoise go, and she fell on a lofty mountain, dashing her shell to pieces.

The Tortoise exclaimed just before she died: “I have deserved my present fate; why did I think I was meant for wings and clouds, when I have such difficulty moving about on the earth?’

Moral: Think about the consequences before you wish for something.

    I guess the tortoise didn’t hear about the bird who wanted to defy the norm. It was winter and he wasn’t going to fly south. After a few days in a bitterly cold blizzard, he couldn’t take it anymore and started off to the south. Halfway there, his wings froze and he plummeted to the ground below. He knew he was a goner and that he had made the dumbest mistake ever. Soon a horse passed by and crapped on the small bird. The heat of the s**t warmed him and defrosted his wings. Finally able to breathe and move freely, the bird was ecstatic and chirping in joy. A cat in a nearby bush heard the bird and pounced on him, swallowing him in one gulp.

    Moral of the Story: Everyone who s**ts on you doesn’t mean that they’re your enemy.

    Everyone who gets you out of s**t isn’t necessarily your friend. And, if you’re warm and happy in a pile of s**t….keep your mouth shut!

    So the moral here is, birds and tortoises are stupid.

    Some people can fly, and some people will just fall, but the flight up is more fun than the plummet down. Take the risk, even if it costs you.

    there are several morals behind this depending on a persons personal experiences and interpretations.

    most obviously it is telling us to do what we are born and meant to do, what we are naturally good at, and to relish it, rather than trying to be something or someone we are not.

    secondly it is speaking of trust, it tells us that we must choose who we trust carefully or suffer the consequences their betrayal can bring about(if the tortoise knew the eagle well, and was friends with him for a time, without a doubt she would have been able to enjoy her end of the deal instead of being stabbed in the back). I feel this is the more important lesson as this applies greatly in all aspects of life, entrust only those who have earned it.

    For the eagle: Sometimes when trying to help others we might accidentally hurt them. What was supposed to be a good deed can turn into a bad one.

    Turtles should never Trust Eagles..

    Either way, it’s a trap.
