A long time ago there was a king and queen who said every day, "Ah, if only we had a child," but they never had one. And finally the queen had a little girl who was so pretty that the king could not contain his joy, and ordered a great feast. When it came to an end, thirteen wise women came to bestow magical gifts upon the baby. When eleven of them had made their promises, suddenly the thirteenth came in. She wished to avenge herself for not having been invited, and she cried with a loud voice, "The king's daughter shall, in her fifteenth year, prick herself with a spindle, and fall down dead."  They were all shocked, but the twelfth, whose good wish still remained unspoken, came forward, and as she could not undo the evil sentence, but only soften it, she said, "It shall not be death ...

Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had an argument about who was faster. They decided to settle the argument with a race. They agreed on a route and started off the race. The hare shot ahead and ran for some time. Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise, he thought he'd sit under a tree and relax before continuing the race. He soon fell asleep. The tortoise overtook him and soon finished the race, emerging as the champion. The hare woke up and realized that he'd lost the race. The moral - "Slow and steady wins the race.

He realized that he'd lost the race only because he had been overconfident and lazy. S ...

There is a bird that lays no eggs and has no young. It was here when the world began and is still living today, in a faraway desert. It is the Phoenix, the bird of fire. One day in the beginning of time, the sun looked down and saw a large bird with shimmering feathers. They were red and gold δΈ€ bright and dazzling like the sun itself. The sun called out, "Glorious Phoenix, you shall be my bird and live forever!"  The Phoenix was overjoyed to hear these words. It lifted its head and sang, "Sun, glorious sun, I shall sing my songs for you alone!" But the Phoenix was not happy for long. Poor bird. Its feathers were far too beautiful. Men, women and children were always chasing it and trying to trap it. They wanted to have some of those beautiful, shiny feathers for themselves. "I cannot ...

There was a wonderful old man who loved everything. Animals, spiders, insects ... One day while walking through the woods, the nice old man found a cocoon. He decided to take the cocoon home to watch its beautiful transformation from a little cocoon to a beautiful butterfly. He gently placed the cocoon on his kitchen table and watched over it for days. One day the cocoon started to move. It moved frantically! The old man felt sorry for the little butterfly inside. He watched it struggle and struggle! Finally the old man rushed to its aid with a scalpel and gently slit the cocoon so the butterfly could emerge. Just one slice was all it took, and the butterfly broke free from its cocoon only to wilt over in a completely motionless state. The old man did not know what to think. Had he acciden ...

Many, many moons ago, in the beginning of time, the Earth was all water. There was no land. All the animals and the winged-ones lived up in the sky on the clouds. They were waiting for the land to dry, but it would not dry. They would send one animal but he would come back unable to find dry land. Finally they sent the water beetle. The water beetle dove into the water, grabbed a handful of mud at the bottom, brought it up and placed it on top of the water. It started to dry, started to build land. He brought more and more, and still they waited for it to dry. Finally, they sent grandfather buzzard down and the land was almost dry. The buzzard flew close to the land and every time he would flap his mighty wings he would form a mountain and a valley. That's why the Cherokee land has mountai ...
