The Coal And The Diamond

A Diamond was berating Coal boasting about its shine. Coal replied that they were related and, reddening in the fire, said he could both shine and heat. Don’t boast.

The Diamond and The Glowworm

A brilliant Diamond was found by a Glow-worm. The Glow-worm berated the Diamond after the sun went down and its glow faded. Diamond had the last word. Don’t get too hung up on your own self-image.
