母狮和雌狐（Lioness and fox）
A lioness and a fox were chatting about their children. Out of their mother’s good wishes, they were all saying how healthy, strong, beautiful and like their parents. “It’s nice to see my baby,” said the fox, and then she said unkindly, “but I notice you’ve never had two or more babies.” “no,” replied the lioness expressionless, “but I gave birth to a lion after all.”
Moral: valuable value lies in quality, not in quantity.
年迈的狮子和狐狸（Old lion and fox）
There was an old lion who could no longer rob food by strength. He thought that he could only get more food by wisdom. So he got into a cave, lay on the ground and pretended to be sick. When other small animals came to spy, he caught them and ate them. In this way, many animals were eaten by lions. The fox saw through the lion’s trick, stood far outside the cave and asked how the lion’s body was now. The lion replied, “very bad.” he asked the fox why he didn’t come into the hole. The fox said, “if I don’t find only the footprints that go in and no footprints that come out, I may go into the hole.”
Moral: wise people can often judge the situation, foresee danger according to signs and avoid misfortune.
