Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
512. JUPITER AND THE GOATS
Perry 516 (Phaedrus
When the she-goats had persuaded Jupiter to give them beards, the male
goats were extremely upset and began to complain that the women now had
the same degree of dignity that they did. 'Come now,' said Jupiter, 'let
the women enjoy this vain source of pride and stake their claim to the
badges of your office so long as they cannot rival you in strength!'
Let this be a sign that you should put up with people who wear the
same uniform as you do, even if they are not your equals in valour.
