L'Estrange: Jupiter and an Ape.

Jupiter took a Fancy once to summon all the Birds and Beasts under the Canopy of Heaven to appear before him with their Brats, and their little Ones, to see which of 'em had the prettiest Children: And who but the Ape to put herself foremost, with a Brace of her Cubs in her Arms, for the greatest Beauties in the Company.

No Body ever saw an ill-favour'd Fool in the World yet, Man or Woman, that had not a good Opinion of his own Wit and Beauty.
