The Two Pots

The Two Pots 1 - The Two Pots

Two Pots, one of earthenware, the other of brass, were carried down a river in a flood.

The Brazen Pot begged his companion to keep by his side, and he would protect him,

“Thank you for your offer,”

said the Earthen Pot, “but that is just what I am afraid of;

if you will only keep at a distance, I may float down in safety; but should we come in contact, I am sure to be the sufferer.”

Avoid too powerful neighbours; for, should there be a collision, the weakest goes to the wall.
