The Peacock and Juno

Body of the Fable

A Peacock once placed a petition before Juno desiring to have the voice of a nightingale in addition to his other attractions; but Juno refused his request. When he persisted, and pointed out that he was her favourite bird, she said:

"Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything"

Moral of the Fable

Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything.
