The Wise Old Owl

A wise old owl lived in an oak;

The more he saw, the less he spoke;

The less he spoke, the more he heard.

Why can’t we all be like that wise old owl?

Answer:

We cannot be like the wise old owl because he is an experienced fellow who has grown old and has seen the world more than us. He is a good listener and speaks less. He has analysis power which makes him a wise fellow.

Answer:

The tale is about three good friends – two birds and a tortoise. The tortoise was a talkative fellow. One fine day all three of them decided to explore a new place. As the tortoise walks very slowly, the birds decided to take him with the help of a long wooden stick.

They asked the tortoise to hold the stick with his mouth and they would carry him by holding it. Soon the birds started flying holding the stick from both its ends. Suddenly, the talkative tortoise opened his mouth to talk to his friends.

Unfortunately, he lost his grip and fell directly on the ground and died. The two birds were shocked to see their tortoise friend fell to his death.
