The Lion and the Statue

Once upon a time in ancient Greece, a man and a lion were arguing with each other. The man said, “I am stronger than you are!” The lion got angry and insisted, “No! Never! How dare you say this! I am stronger!” Then, the man showed the lion a statue of Hercules tearing a lion in two. The man said, “Look! I am stronger than you!” The clever lion replied, “A man made this statue. This is not how a lion would have made it! This sculptor did not ask this lion for his opinion before making the statue!” The man realised that the lion was speaking the truth. He said, “You are right. The reality is not always how we see it. Let us be friends!” The lion agreed and they became very good friends and never argued with each other again.
