The Mule (fable)

A MULE, frolicsome from lack of work and from too much corn, galloped about in a very extravagant manner, and said to himself:

“My father surely was a high-mettled racer, and I am his own child in speed and spirit.”

On the next day, being driven a long journey, and feeling very wearied, he exclaimed in a disconsolate tone:

“I must have made a mistake; my father, after all, could have been only an ass.”
