United We Stand

Today's letter is U.

This message is strong in my head and heart today. So, I shall leave it to Aesop and the Brotherhood of Man to deliver it. 

The Four Oxen and the Lion
by Aesop
translated by George Fyler Townsend
(Public Domain Translation of Aesop's Fables Selections)

A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he tried to attack them; but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one another, so that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last, however, they fell a-quarrelling among themselves, and each went off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Then the Lion attacked them one by one and soon made an end of all four.
United we stand, divided we fall.  


  1. What a great reminder about why it is important to stay connected with friends and family.

  2. A great message for us all to keep in mind.

  3. Too bad Washington doesn't read your blog!!!

  4. We all need reminding of that fable from time to time! Very timely, indeed.

  5. Glad you all enjoyed reading and hearing the message. :-)

  6. Great post. We are always better together. Which by the way is also the title to a wonderful song by Jack Johnson.

  7. Well, that was a sad story. A gray day, ice all over the ground and you tell me four oxen got gobbled up by a lion. Phoey. Just Kidding. I got your point and I like that song. You and husband and Mama have a great weekend.
    Love, Manzi

  8. have a smiling day tomorrow.

  9. I love fables. There is definitely strength in banding together against the harshness of the world.

    Thanks for a unique slant on the letter "U" on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday.

    I enjoyed my stop here today.
