The Goose and the Horse
Once upon a time, there was a
goose who was plucking grass in a lush green meadow. In the course of her
plucking, a horse came along and started feeding nearby. The goose was offended
by the horse's actions, and proceeded to put him in his place, saying…
"I am, without a doubt, a
more distinguished and complete animal than you, because your body is only good
for one thing.
I, on the other hand, have the
power to move on the land just as you can; not to mention that I am able to
soar above your head as I please; and when I am in need of a bath I can refresh
myself in the cool waters of ponds and lakes.
I can be a bird, fish and land
beast depending on my mood."
Upon hearing this, the horse
snorted and neighed as though hearing a good joke. He replied, "It's true
that you are perfectly ABLE to function in all three elements, but you aren't
naturally gifted in any one of them.
You can fly, but you are so
heavy and awkward that you could never rival the lark or the swallow for gracefulness.
You can swim on the surface of
water, but you cannot survive underwater and glide as smoothly as a fish can;
nor can you find your food beneath the waves."
And when you walk, oh… when you
waddle your way around, with your flat feet and your long neck sticking out
like a sore thumb, hissing and spitting at every other beast, you are truly a
laughingstock among the land dwellers.
I admit that I am only able to
move on land; but how graceful I am in my element! How well-built are my legs
for my purpose! How powerful my entire body! How magnificent my strength! How
blazing my speed.
I would much rather be only
FOCUSED on one element, and be a GREAT FORCE in that, than be a goose in
So what do you think is the message in this story?
My take is that you should be thankful and appreciate what you’re
naturally gifted in. You will always find someone else that is better at something
more than you but it doesn’t diminish the blend of talents that you possess.
