A nice tale from Aesop that came back recently to my memory and I wanted to share it with you:

A Crow (black big bird) which was on a tree with a piece  of cheese in its mouth. The sly fox was watching the craw and it used a clever way to get the cheese. So it told the craw ‘I heard you have a very nice and sweet voice can you sing a little?’, The crow being flattered, tried to sing with a result that the cheese fell on the ground and the fox ate it.

This teaches us to be careful from flatterers, who they don’t mean it when they say something good to someone but they only say it in order to gain something they want from you.
