The Goat and the Goatherd (fable)

A GOATHERD had sought to bring back a stray goat to his flock. He whistled and sounded his horn in vain; the straggler paid no attention to the summons.

At last the Goatherd threw a stone, and breaking its horn, begged the Goat not to tell his master.

The Goat replied,

“Why, you silly fellow, the horn will speak though I be silent.”

Do not attempt to hide things which cannot be hid.
