The Swallow and the Crow by Aesop

The Swallow and the Crow had an argument one day about their plumage.

Said the Swallow: “Just look at my bright and downy feathers. Your black stiff quills are not worth having. Why don’t you dress better? Show a little pride!”

“Your feathers may do very well in spring,” replied the Crow, “but—I don’t remember ever having seen you around in winter, and that’s when I enjoy myself most.”

Moral Lesson: Friends in fine weather only, are not worth much.
