One day, a fox and a leopard were walking in the forest. They saw a group of animals nearby and decided to join them. The animals were having a friendly conversation about their appearance and abilities.
The leopard was very proud of his beautiful spots. He said to the other animals, “Look at me, I have the most splendid coat in the world. My spots are like stars in the sky, shining and dazzling. No one can match my beauty and grace.”
The fox was not impressed by the leopard’s boast. He said to the other animals, “Spots are not everything, my friend. What good are they if you cannot use them wisely? I may not have a fancy coat, but I have a clever mind. I can outwit any enemy and find my way out of any trouble. No one can match my cunning and skill.”
The animals listened to the fox and the leopard, and they agreed that both of them had their own strengths and weaknesses. They said to the fox and the leopard, “You are both admirable in your own ways. You should not compare yourselves to each other, but rather appreciate your differences and learn from each other.”
The fox and the leopard realized that they were being foolish and vain. They apologized to each other and became friends. They decided to work together and use their talents to help each other and the other animals.
Moral: Beauty and brains are both valuable, but only when they are used for good.
