Story 111 The Two Pots
There were two pots
on the bank of a river. One was made of brass
, and the other was made of clay
When the water rose they both floated
off down the river. The earthen
pot tried to stay away from the brass one.
So the brass pot cried out, "Fear nothing, friend, I will not hit you."
"But I may come in contact with
you," said the earthen pot. "If I come too close, whether I hit you or you hit me, I shall suffer
After that the earthen pot floated away.
Why did the earten pot float away from the brass pot?
A. Because he hated to be with the brass pot.
B. Because if he came near the brass pot, he will be broken.
