The Donkey(驴) and the Statue(雕像)

A donkey(驴) was pulling a cart(马车) with a religious(宗教的) statue(雕像) in it, and all the people bowed(鞠躬) in deep respect as the status(雕像) passed them.

The donkey(驴), who thought that they were showing their respect for him, became very proud and refused to take another step.

But the driver just hit him with his stick and said, “Stupid donkey(驴)! It is not you they respect, but the statue(雕像) you’re carrying.”

MORAL: Only fools(傻瓜) try to take the credit(赞扬) which others deserve(应得).
