The Cockerel And The Jewel

Ngebray.com,- Searching for scraps of food, a cockerel was scratching up the earth in the farmyard. Suddenly, he came upon a precious jewel, shining and glittering with many colours. Not knowing its real value, he did not know what to do with it. “You are certainly a very fine object for those who might appreciate your true value,” sighed the cockerel, “but I’d prefer a single grain of corn.”

MORAL : “The beautiful value of an object is in the eye of the beholder.”
