Aesop's Fable "THE GNAT AND THE BULL". Illustration by Arthur Rackham

A Gnat alighted on one of the horns of a Bull, and remained sitting there for a considerable time. When it had rested sufficiently and was about to fly away, it said to the Bull, "Do you mind if I go now?" The Bull merely raised his eyes and remarked, without interest, "It′s all one to me; I didn′t notice when you came, and I shan′t know when you go away."

We may often be of more consequence in our own eyes than in the eyes of our neighbours.
