The Lion and the Donkey
One day as the Lion walked proudly down a forest aisle, and the animals respectfully made way for him, a Donkey brayed a scornful remark as he passed.
The Lion felt a flash of anger. But when he turned his head and saw who had spoken, he walked quietly on. He would not honor the fool with even so much as a stroke of his claws.
Do not resent the remarks of a fool. Ignore them.
Moozie says “Always be kind. If someone says or does something that is unkind, there are two possible reactions that you can have. The first is to try to say or do something kind for them to possibly change their attitude and behavior. However, there are some people (and animals) who will not or cannot change, so it is best just to ignore and forget what they say or do.”
