The Fox and The Mask
an Aesop Fable

       One day a fox went rummaging in the house of an actor. He came across a pile of the actor's stage accessories and noticed a mask in the midst of the pile.

 He swatted and played with the mask for a few moments before saying, "What a handsome face this person has. It's a pity he has no brains."


A fine outward appearance is empty without a worthwhile inner self.
