The Two Pots

<p><p>Two Pots had been left on the bank of a river, one of brass, and one of earthenware.
When the tide rose they both floated off down the stream. Now the earthenware
pot tried its best to keep aloof from the brass one, which cried out: &#147;For
nothing, friend, I will not strike you.&#148; <br>
&#147;But I may come in contact with you,&#148; said the other, &#147;if I come
too close; and whether I hit you, or you hit me, I shall suffer for it.&#148;<br>
<p>&#147;THE STRONG AND THE WEAK CANNOT KEEP COMPANY.&#148; <br>
