The She Goats And Their Beards
The She-Goats having obtained a beard by request to Jupiter, the He-Goats
were sorely displeased and made complaint that the females equaled
them in dignity. "Allow them," said Jupiter, "to enjoy an empty honor
and to assume the badge of your nobler sex, so long as they are not
your equals in strength or courage."
It matters little if those who are inferior to us in merit should
be like us in outside appearances.
