Lion and Statue
One day, a Man and a Lion were discussing the relative strength of men and lions. The Man said that he and all his fellow men were stronger than lions because they were much more intelligent.
“Come with me,“
“and I will soon prove that I am right.“
So he took him into the park and showed him a statue of Hercules overcoming the Lion and tearing him in two.
“Oh, that is all very well,“
said the Lion,
“but honestly it proves nothing, for it was a man who made the statue.“
We can easily represent things as we wish them to be.
