The Wild Boar and The Fox

A wild boar was sharpening his tusks on a tree trunk one day. A fox asked him why he did this when there was neither huntsman nor danger threatening him. “I do so for a good reason,” he replied. “For if I am suddenly surprised by danger I wouldn’t have the time to sharpen my tusks. But now I will find them ready to do their duty.”

This fable shows that it is no good waiting until a danger comes to be ready.

    Aesop produces some good stories. I liked this story as a reminder to always be ready.

    If you live you life in anticipation or badness, you’ll never have time to appreciate the good


    • That’s right my friend. Enjoy every single moment without any judgement or critiscm. But be ready to deal with any shortcomings efficiently and effectively. That way you can get straight back to peace and love!! πŸ™‚
