1．The Eagle and the Raven
An eagle was trying to break open a nut in his beak when a raven landed on a branch beside him. The raven eyed the nut hopefully, "Youll never break it like that,"he said. "If I were you I would fly up in the sky as high as I could, then drop the nut onto the rocks. Its the only way youll get at the kernel."
The eagle flew up into the sky, then let the nut fall down, down, down to the ground. The raven hopped quickly from his branch and seized the nut in his beak. By the time the eagle had found his way back to the right place, all that was left was a broken piece of shell.
