Gaius Julius Phaedrus He was a Macedonian slave who, after regaining his freedom, dedicated part of his life to writing fables, not only for children, but for all those who wanted to learn from his morals and moral values.
At man and stonePhaedrus shows us how man is the only animal that can stumble twice on the same stone; and that, no matter how much intelligence we are given, we do not usually use it as we should.
Aesop's master sent Aesop to the baths to tell him if there were too many people. When he arrived, he saw several people enter who were going stumbling all with a stone placed before the door.
Only one ducked before stumbling to remove it to a corner Where no one else could trip
- Were there a lot of people? asked the master when Aesop returned.
"Ummm ... No," the slave answered convinced. In the bathrooms there was only one men.
Moral: Only men can use their intelligence to avoid obstacles and save others from them.
