The Boasting Traveller

Once there was a man named Fred. He used to go on adventurous journeys and boasted about his achievements after coming back. He talked for hours about different people he met and the amazing things that got him fame and praise. 

One such time, he went to the Rhodes and when he came back, he told everybody about how he had leaped to such distances that no man could ever match it.

To prove his point, he even went on to say that there were witnesses who would vouch whatever he was saying. Hearing the man boast so much, a smart bystander said, “Well that's fantastic, we do not need any witnesses to believe your words. Imagine if this place was Rhodes, could you leap for us and demonstrate it again”.

Fred knew that he was caught and didn’t know what to do, so he went away quietly. All the people laughed at his silliness.


He who does a thing well does not need to boast
