Thummel: The Fox and the Leopard

A leopard was heard giving vent to his thoughts,
Expressing much pride in his beautiful spots.
A cunning old fox was standing quite near him,
And listened intently on purpose to hear him.
Speaking with dignity and raising his head,
To the boasting leopard the sly old fox said:
"Your beauty from mine is a different kind;
You're proud of your skin while I'm proud of my mind.''
It is true, very true, this fact you will find,
There's no greater beauty than that of the mind.
