Лиса и виноград

The essence of the fable shows how the fox is looking for a spare door to give himself the opportunity not to think about the fact that her abilities are not quite in the subject. This is also the case with people, everyone is looking for an excuse for their failures, although what does grapes have to do with it?

«The Fox and the Grapes»

One hot summer’s day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch. “Just the thing to quench my thirst,” quote he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: “I am sure they are sour.”

“It is easy to despise what you cannot get.”
