Fir Tree And Bramble Bush

A fir tree said boastingly to the bramble bush growing in its shade:

“You are useless.

Nobody wants you.

I am everywhere used for roofs and houses.

Men can’t do without me.”

“You’re so right,” said the bramble.

“Here’s a man coming to you with an axe, right now. Farewell.”

Moral Of The Story: Pride comes before a fall.
