Once when a bull was being pursued by a lion, he fled into a cave where a wild goat was living. The goat was a grouchy creature and began attacking the bull by butting him with his horns.
“If I put up with this now,” the bull said, “don’t suppose it’s because I’m afraid of you. Once the lion is out of sight, I’ll soon show you the difference between a bull and a goat.”
Old Learning: Never approach mean people when in distress.
The bull didn’t enter the cave knowingly. Sometimes, we need to sacrifice little for larger gain.
