The Boastful Traveller

There was once a man who had travelled to many foreign places. On returning to his country, he boasted about his adventures and the heroic feats he had performed.

One day, while narrating his experiences to some bystander she said, “When I was in Rhodes, I jumped such a great distance that no one else could beat me. I can call witnesses from Rhodes who saw me doing it.” One person who had been listening to the man said that there was no need of witnesses. He asked the man to imagine he was in Rhodes and perform the same feat again.

At this, the man was taken aback as he had not expected this response.

He was trying to impress everyone and had not thought that anyone would challenge him. He quietly left the place and was never seen or heard boasting ever again.
