The Trees and the Axe 
An Aesop's Fable

A Man came into a forest, and made a petition to the Trees to provide him a handle for his axe. The Trees consented to his request, and gave him a young ash-tree. No sooner had the man fitted from it a new handle to his axe, than he began to use it, and quickly felled with his strokes the noblest giants of the forest. An old oak, lamenting when too late the destruction of his companions, said to a neighboring cedar: "The first step has lost us all. If we had not given up the rights of the ash, we might yet have retained our own privileges and have stood for ages."

Moral of Aesops Fable: In yielding the rights of others, we may endanger our own.

 

This famous Book of Fables, which are always referred to as
Aesop's Fables, date back to the 5th Century BC I hope you enjoy .
