The Lamp (fable)

A LAMP, soaked with too much oil and flaring brightly, boasted that it gave more light than the sun. Then a sudden puff of wind arose, and the Lamp was immediately extinguished.

Its owner lit it again, and said:

“Boast no more, but henceforth be content to give thy light in silence. Know that not even the stars need to be relit.”
