"Tales of Aesop". Two vases, one was made of brass and the other was earthenware, were floating down a river. Since the earthenware vase seemed to swim away from the brass one, which called out: �Why you are so in a hurry? I want to be more friendly and come close to you!" The earthenware replied, �If we come too close to each other; and whether I hit you, or you hit me, I am the one who shall suffer for it.�.
