By their nature, "fables" are "fabulous", larger than life, the characters often using wit and guile to save themselves from circumstances. Thus Brer Rabbit is more than a bunny in a briar patch, just as Mowgli is more than a wolf child. Aesop, an ancient Greek poet who was sold into slavery in the early sixth century B.C, relied on animal stories to convey his key points to his masters in court. Aesop's Fables are now classic, memorable morality plays in which amusing animal characters drive home thought-provoking morals to generations of listeners and modern day readers. They illustrate what was fundamental to Greek culture yet their appeal lies in logic we still understand. Fables from different cultures frequently overlap in the lessons they teach. If we would only stop to listen, there is an important lesson for us to learn from these fables; mankind is one, not several. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Kent.

Imagine private jets ready for an afternoon flight to New York City for a transcontinental shopping trip...luxury yachts circling the globe awaiting their owner's arrival...fully staffed but rarely visited vacation homes throughout the world. The rich live trouble-free lives of graceful ease. Or do they? In Fables of Fortune, author Richard Watts pulls back the brocade curtain to reveal the precarious path of wanting more. As an advisor to the super-rich, Watts reflects on the reality of wealth and a difficult and heartbreaking lesson: "The wealthiest person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least." Through vignettes based on true stories, Fables of Fortune reveals the challenges the super-wealthy face, including marriages based on net worth, interfamily inheritance battles, faux friends, entitled children, alienation, and spiritual depletion. It also challenges listeners to reconsider key life questions of personal value - and discover surprising new answers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks.

More than 100 fables from the most famous storyteller of all times!Aesop’s Fables, the globally read phenomenon, originated from a man who lived long ago - a storyteller, actually. His name was none other than Aesop; his last name though, no one really knows. Aesop was a slave in ancient Greece who told his stories between 620 and 564 BCE, which is when he’s believed to have lived. Since those ancient times, many of his stories have been told and retold. It is sometimes hard to tell which is the original of so many of his stories, as they have been passed down orally, written from book to book, and told from generation to generation. So obviously, the stories have changed a lot over the years.His stories have spread so widely all through the years that there are different translations for all the stories, from Latin, to Greek, English and even some Asian languages. Each culture may have a different storyline or a different moral lesson, but at the end of the day, we are all learning the same thing under the great Aesop.There are so many fables out there wrongly accredited to Aesop, regardless of the fact that some of the stories came before his existence and even after his death. Some of them will be told at the end of this book. The general error that people have made is that anywhere a children’s story has mythical creatures or animals with morals at the end, we automatically assume it is a work of Aesop.Initially, the fables were supposed to be for adults and not children (that is the reason why most of the fables, if looked up today in their original versions and not a children’s translation, will be written in a complex and difficult to understand English rather than a generally understandable one). The moral lessons given at the end of the stories usually give political, social, and independent living advice, which sometimes doesn’t apply to children.But over the years, different authors have come at differen 1.
