A man and a lion once went on a journey together. Each began telling the other how much stronger he was than the other. As they walked along the road they passed a great stone statue that showed a man wining a fight with a lion.
"There you are," said the man. "The lion just smiled. "Don't be too sure, my friend," replied the lion. "if we lions knew how to carve, you would see more statues with a lion on top of a man."
