Two Pots had been left on the bank of a river, one of brass,
and one of earthenware. When the tide rose they both floated off down the stream. Now the earthenware pot tried its best to keep
aloof from the brass one, which cried out:
"Fear nothing, friend,
I will not strike you."
"But I may come in contact with you," said the other, "if I come too close; and whether I hit you, or you hit me, I shall
suffer for it."
