50. THE EAGLE AND THE LION AS PARTNERS
Perry 335 (Babrius
An eagle flew up to a lion and asked him to be his partner. 'I don't
see why not,' replied the lion. 'But first you must give me your long
wing-feathers as a pledge that you will keep your promise. How will I
be able to trust you as a friend if you do not stay here with me?'
