Never Belittle Other’s Danger
A fawn found his way into a meadow where a flock of sheep were grazing. The shepherd caught him, and was proceeding to carry him off to the butcher’s when he set up a loud squealing and struggled to get free.
The sheep rebuked him for making such a to-do, and said to him, “The shepherd catches us regularly and drags us off just like that, and we don’t make any fuss.”
“No, I dare say not,” replied the fawn, “but my case and yours are altogether different: he only wants you for wool, but me, wants for my flesh!”
Don’t add insult to injury. Never make light of the danger others are in.
