Aesop's Fables

The Peacock and Juno

A Peacock once placed a petition before Juno desiring to have the voice of a nightingale in addition to his other attractions; but Juno refused his request.

When he persisted, and pointed out that he was her favourite bird, she said: "Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything".

Moral of Aesop's Fable:

"Be content with your lot"
