Vainglory Zeus, wanting to give a king to the birds, looked at them one day because he could choose the most beautiful of all. Then the birds gathered to cleaning. The chough, that he was aware of his ugliness, he went to collect the feathers which had fallen to the other birds and attacked on his back, becoming the most beautiful of all. On the appointed day, the birds appeared before Zeus was about to designate the king, because of its beautiful appearance, when others outraged tore each own wings. So the chough, stripped, returned again chough. This happens to those who live in debt, until the money of others seem to have the big boys, but, when they were returned, return those who were before. Illustration by Arthur Rackham (1867 - 1939) of 'The Chough and Birds' for a collection of Aesop's Fables, 1912.
