136 - The Cock and the Jewel

Back

A Cock, scratching for food for himself and his hens, found a precious stone and exclaimed: 

"If your owner had found thee, and not I, he would have taken thee up, and have set thee in thy first estate; but I have found thee for no purpose. I would rather have one barleycorn than all the jewels in the world."


What is useless, has no value.
