The Horse and the Hog

Default Image

Once, a Hog was walking on a street. There, he met a Horse. They both started talking.

The Horse said, “Hog, what do you do all the day?”

The Hog replied, “I eat, sleep and bring up my children. And you?”

The Horse said, “Oh! I am very busy. I go to war with my master. You must also join the army and serve our country!”

The Hog thought for a while and said, “No, Horse, I can’t join the army.”

The Horse asked, “Why not?”

The Hog replied, “I will be of no use to anyone on the battlefield. Neither can anyone sit on me, nor can I run and yes, I don’t know how to fight.”

“But I can teach you, if you want,” said the Horse.

The Hog shook his

head and said, “No, Horse.

Everybody has a different purpose in life. Mine is to take care of my children and yours is to take care of your master. I would like to do my best in my own task and not try to become like someone else.”

The Horse understood that the wise Hog was right.

Whatever you do, do it in the best possible way.
