The Fox and the Lion

A fox had never seen a lion before, and when he finally encountered one for the first time, he was so terrified that he almost died of fright. When he met him the second time, he was still afraid but managed to conceal his fear. When he saw him the third time, he was so emboldened that he went up to him and began having a familiar conversation with him.

Old Learning: Familiarity breeds contempt.

New Take

Will the fox be able to attack the lion fourth time it meets. Familiarity doesn’t breed disdain – Familiarity breaks the barrier and breeds camaraderie.
