The Crow and the Dog

095. THE CROW AND THE DOG. A Crow invited a Dog to Joyn in a Sacrifice to Minerva. That will be to no Purpose (says the Dog) for the Goddess has such an Aversion to ye, that you are particularly excluded out of all Auguries. Ay, says the Crow, but I'll Sacrifice the rather to her for that, to try if I can make her my Friend. THE MORAL. We find it in the Practice of the World, that Men take up Religion more for Fear, Reputation, and Interest, than for true Affection. (Sir Roger L'Estrange) [more info]
