The Two Lizards





On a warm winter morning, two Lizards sat on a high wall of an old mill. They were enjoying the bright sunshine. One Lizard kept dreaming all the time and was unhappy. The other was older and wiser.
“How miserable is our situation!” cried the Unhappy Lizard. “No one notices us. We are small and have such dull lives. Look at the other bigger animals. They are so royal and majestic!”
The Unhappy Lizard sighed, “I wish I was born a deer. To be quick and have great, big horns! And live proudly in the royal forest.”
At that very moment, a pack of dogs ran past, chasing a deer. The deer was tired and the hungry dogs pounced on it.
The Lizards watched in horror.
The Wise Lizard said to his complaining friend, “You wanted to be in place of this poor deer!”
“You should learn from what you just saw. You are not beautifully coloured or quick on your feet. But, you are alive! Destiny is kind to you. You are small and safe from danger, unlike the bigger animals!”

Be Happy With What You Are.
