The Oxen And The Axle Trees
A heavy wagon was being dragged along a country lane by a team of
Oxen. The Axle-trees groaned and creaked terribly; whereupon the Oxen,
turning round, thus addressed the wheels: "Hullo there! why do you
make so much noise? We bear all the labor, and we, not you, ought
to cry out."
Those who suffer most cry out the least.
