The squirrel, jumping from one branch to another, fell one day on top of a sleeping wolf.
The wolf grabbed him and wanted to devour him, but the squirrel begged him to let him live.
- He's fine - replies the wolf - I will spare you, on condition that you tell me why you squirrels are always so cheerful. I get bored while I see you jumping and playing all the time.
"I'm afraid of you," murmured the squirrel. - Let me jump on the branch and I'll tell you.
The wolf let him go; the squirrel jumped onto the branch and said from there: - You're always bored, because you're bad; cruelty dries up the heart and kills joy. We, on the other hand, are cheerful, because we are good and do not hurt anyone.
How many sleeping wolves there are in the woods of our stories! Let's hope that touched by someone's good they learn to devour... their own wickedness.
(by L. Tolstoy))
