Either I don't have a good memory, or maybe I just unconsciously tend to forget things. My whole childhood could be written in one or two pages, if I can sit down to write it. But this book is one of a few things I will never forget to mention. The richness of a spiritual world from this book was the only force that I can use to get away from the real materialized world.

About the author (1994)

Though many modern scholars dispute his existence, Aesop's life was chronicled by first century Greek historians who wrote that Aesop, or Aethiop, was born into Greek slavery in 620 B.C. Freed because of his wit and wisdom, Aesop supposedly traveled throughout Greece and was employed at various times by the governments of Athens and Corinth. Some of Aesop's most recognized fables are The Tortoise and the Hare, The Fox and the Grapes, and The Ant and the Grasshopper. His simple but effective morals are widely used and illustrated for children.
