Moral Story ‣ The Plane Tree

Two Travellers, walking in the noonday sun, sought the shade of a wide spreading tree to rest.

As they lay looking up among the pleasant leaves, they saw that it was a Plane Tree.

“How useless is the Plane!” said one of them. “It bears no fruit whatever, and only serves to litter the ground with leaves.”

“Ungrateful creatures!” said a voice from the Plane Tree.

“You lie here in my cooling shade, and yet you say I am useless! Thus ungratefully, O Jupiter, do men receive their blessings!”

Moral Of The Story: Our best blessings are often the least appreciated.
