It is said that the swans sing just before dying. A man saw in selling to a swan, and having heard that it was a very melodious animal, bought it.

One day that the man was giving a dinner, brought the swan and asked him to sing during the banquet. But the swan stayed in silence.

But another day, thinking the swan that was already going to die, necessarily wept in advance for his melody. On having heard him, the proprietor said:

"If only you sing when you are going to die, I was an idiot asking you to sing instead of immolating you."

 

Often it happens that we have to do by force what we did not want to do of will.
