Λέαινα και ζώα (ΑΙΣΩΠΟΣ)

Στάσις δέ ἦλθε πᾶσι τοῖς τετραπόδοις καύχημα κατέχουσα εἰς παίδων πλήθη. Και δή ἔφασκον τῆ λεαίνη βοῶντες· “Εἰπέ δέ καί σύ τό πόσους παῖδας τίκτεις.” Ἡ δέ γελῶσα πρός αὐτούς ταῦτα λέγει· “Σκύμνον μέν ἕνα, ἀλλά γενναῖον πάνυ.”
Ὁ μῦθος δηλοῖ ὅτι κρείσσων εἷς ρώμη σώματος καί ἀνδρεία καί φρονήσει ἤ πολλοί δειλοί και ἄφρονες.

Η λέαινα και τα ζώα

Τα ζώα όλα συναγωνίζονταν μεταξύ τους με καμάρι, ποιο κάνει τα περισσότερα παιδιά.
Ρώτησαν λοιπόν και τη λέαινα: “Πες μας και συ, πόσα παιδιά γεννάς;”.
Κι εκείνη γελώντας τους απάντησε: “Ένα λιονταράκι, αλλά ατρόμητο”.

Ο μύθος δηλώνει ότι ο ένας δυνατός, γενναίος και συνετός είναι καλύτερος από πολλούς δειλούς και άμυαλους.
