Aesop's Fables with lessons and morals

One day wandered a Wolf by solitary places, at the time that the Sun was put on the horizon. And seeing his shadow beautifully elongated exclaimed:
-How will I scare the lion with similar size that I have? With thirty metres long, well easy I will be becoming King of the beasts!
And while he dreamed of his pride, a powerful lion fell over and began to devour it. Then the Wolf, changing opinion said:
-The presumption is cause of my misfortune.

Never values your virtues by the appearance that your eyes see them because you easily deceive you.
