A farmer and his son, traveling by horse and buggy up a narrow lane, met a motorist going the other way. There was no room to pass for two miles in either direction. The motorist, in hurry, honked his horn.
“If you don't back up,” said the farmer, rolling up his sleeves, “I won't like what I'm going to have to do.” The surprised driver put his car in reverse and backed up two miles, allowing the horse and buggy to go by.
“What was it you wouldn't have liked to have done back there?” asked the farmer's son.
“Back up two miles,” replied the farmer.
The monkey mother has two little monkeys. She likes the younger, not the other.

After some time, the wolf went away slowly. The monkey took the baby out of her arms. She was surprised to see that the baby had died, for the baby was held in arms too highly. Very long time later, she remembered to look for the older baby. The older baby was hiding in a wood. So he saved himself.

Once there were two mice. They were friends. One mouse lived in the country; the other mouse lived in the city. After many years the Country mouse saw the City mouse; he said, "Do come and see me at my house in the country."
So the City mouse went. The City mouse said, "This food is not good, and your house is not good. Why do you live in a hole in the field? You should come and live in the city. You would live in a nice house made of stone. You would have nice food to eat. You must come and see me at my house in the city."
The Country mouse went to the house of the City mouse. It was a very good house. Nice food was set ready for them to eat. But just as they began to eat they heard a great noise.
The City mouse cried, " Run! Run! The cat is coming!" They ran away quickly and hid.
After some time they came out. When they came out, the Country mouse said, "I do not like living in the city. I like living in my hole in the field. For it is nicer to be poor and happy, than to be rich and afraid."
In a country home， a mother hen and her cute chicks were living happily. A little girl came to visit the country home， but was very bored. One night， the girl went into the chicken house. As soon as she went in， there was disorder.
Here and there cries of the chickens could be heard. The father， who was inside， woke up.
“What‘s going on? Why are you bothering the chickens?” “Because I’m bored.” “You have to sleep now， go inside.”
The girl went into the chicken house， again， the next day. There was a racket again， as the chickens were frightened. The moon in the night sky was worried. This time， the little girl‘s father will not be forgiving.
Finally， the sleeping father woke up. “Why are the chickens crying? By chance” The father was angry and came out to the yard.
“What’s wrong with you? Is it okay to bother animals that can‘t talk? You need to be punished.” When the little girl saw her father’s angry face， she began to cry.
“It is true that I bothered the chickens， but I was bored yesterday. But today I went in to apologize to the chickens. I was going to hug the chickens.”
When the father heard what his daughter said， a smile quickly appeared on his face. “You are truly my daughter.” The father praised his daughter. He was proud of his daughter that knew how to apologize. The moon in the sky gave a big laugh， too.
A man was going to the house of some rich person. As he went along the road, he saw a box of good apples at the side of the road. He said, "I do not want to eat those apples; for the rich man will give me much food; he will give me very nice food to eat." Then he took the apples and threw them away into the dust.
He went on and came to a river. The river had become very big; so he could not go over it. He waited for some time; then he said, "I cannot go to the rich man's house today, for I cannot get over the river."
He began to go home. He had eaten no food that day. He began to want food. He came to the apples, and he was glad to take them out of the dust and eat them.
Do not throw good things away; you may be glad to have them at some other time.
