De raaf en de vos

Aesopus

Een hongerige raaf zat in een vijgenboom, en omdat hij bemerkte dat ze nog steeds hard waren, wachtte hij tot ze rijp waren. Een vos zag hem daar als versteend zitten en vroeg naar de reden, en, toen hij die had gehoord, zei: “Het is een vergissing om je aandacht te richten op hoop. Hoop kan je alleen teleurstellen, het zal nooit je buik vullen.”
