Plane Tree

Two travellers,worn out by the heat of the summer's sun, laid themselves down at noon under the widely spread out branches of a plane tree. As they rested under its shade, one of the travellers said to the other, "What a singularly useless tree is the plane! It bears no fruit, and is not of the least service to man."

The plane tree, interrupting him, said, 'Ton ungrateful fellows! Do you, while receiving benefit from me and resting under my shade, dare to describe me as useless, and unprofitable?'
