A Bought Comfort Isn’t a Blessing

One winter day, a wild ass was wandering about aimlessly. Suddenly he came to the edge of the forest where he saw a donkey lying in the warm sun at full length. Quite care-free as the donkey looked, the ass envied him a lot. The wild ass went to the donkey and said, “How lucky you are! Your sleek skin shows how well you live. “ Saying this, the ass left the place but still kept thinking about the donkey. After few days, he came again to see the donkey. But this time the donkey had a heavy load on his back. His master was following him with a stick in his hand and was hitting the donkey off and on to make him move at a steady pace. Seeing this the ass said to himself, “What a pity. I no longer envy him. I didn‘t know that he has to live such a miserable life and has to buy his comfort at this price. “
