Aesop Fables

Stories Like Aesop Fables are in the writings of almost  every culture and every country.   They have been traced back to before 1000 BC.  Fables come from folk literature that was mostly spread by word of mouth in the oral tradition. Most of the  Aesop Fables, as we know them today in this country, are from a  book named  'Aesop's Fables' published as a children's book in 1912.

The author was a man named Aesop.  He was a Greek slave and storyteller that lived around  the years 620 to 564 BC.  He is  probably the most famous of all the authors of fables.  His fables, translated from Latin and Greek,  were not recognized as great  until more than 3 centuries after his death..  

Aesop Fables, were known for their teachings, because they almost alway had a moral statement at the end of the story.  In our research, we discovered some of his fables did not have a moral written at the end.  If he wrote stories without a moral, what was he trying to communicate to the children.

Here we are going to show some of Aesop Fablesthat he wrote without a moral at the end.

Aesop Fables - The Seller of Images  - A CERTAIN MAN made a wooden image of Mercury and offered it for sale. When no one appeared willing to buy it, in order to attract purchasers, he cried out that he had the statue to sell of a benefactor who bestowed wealth and helped to heap up riches. One of the bystanders said to him, "My good fellow, why do you sell him, being such a one as you describe, when you may yourself enjoy the good things he has to give?' "Why," he replied, "I am in need of immediate help, and he is wont to give his good gifts very slowly."
