The Dove and the Crow (fable)

A DOVE shut up in a cage was boasting of the large number of young ones which she had hatched.

A Crow hearing her, said:

“My good friend, cease from this unseasonable boasting. The larger the number of your family, the greater your cause of sorrow, in seeing them shut up in this prison-house.”
