The Caterpillar and the Peacock
The caterpillar complained to the peacock about how miserable he was crawling around on the ground all day.
“Don’t think about what you are,” said the peacock, “but rather what you will become.”
“Oh,” grunted the caterpillar, “You mean when I become a butterfly?”
“No,” answered the peacock, “Dinner.”
And with one swift snap of its beak, the peacock put the caterpillar out of its misery.
