“If you take pride in your physical strength, remember that the mule, the donkey, and the bull are stronger than you and better suited to carrying heavy loads.

If you feel vain about the lightness of your running style, remember that the dog and the hare surpass you in this field.

It is extremely curious that rational beings feel proud of something in which they are surpassed by dumb animals.”

Ibn Hazm Al’Andulasi, Rahmatullahialay
