The Lion in Love A LION demanded the daughter of a woodcutter in marriage. The Father, unwilling to grant, and yet afraid to refuse his request, hit upon this expedient to rid himself of his importunities. He expressed his willingness to accept the Lion as the suitor of his daughter on one condition: that he should allow him to extract his teeth, and cut off his claws, as his daughter was fearfully afraid of both. The Lion cheerfully assented to the proposal. But when the toothless, clawless Lion returned to repeat his request, the Woodman, no longer afraid, set upon him with his club, and drove him away into the forest. “LOVE CAN TAME THE WILDEST.”
The Scorpion and the Frog A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion says, "Because if I do, I will die too." The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp "Why?" Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."
THE ASS AND HIS SHADOW
A TRAVELER hired an Ass to convey him to a distant place. The day being intensely hot, and the sun shining in its strength, the Traveler stopped to rest, and sought shelter from the heat under the Shadow of the Ass. As this afforded only protection for one, and as the Traveler and the owner of the Ass both claimed it, a violent dispute arose between them as to which of them had the right to the Shadow. The owner maintained that he had let the Ass only, and not his Shadow. The Traveler asserted that he had, with the hire of the Ass, hired his Shadow also. The quarrel proceeded from words to blows, and while the men fought, the Ass galloped off. In quarreling about the shadow we often lose the substance.
I am a free spirit. A wild woman, a maneater. I require a strong alpha male, because I will suck all his power up if he is not strong enough to take me on. I need someone who puts 100% trust in me, and knows no matter what I do, or how things may seem, or how flirtatious I may even be, my end game is him and at the end of the night I’m coming home to him. I’m not the cheating type. I have been taken for a ride before, I have had my heart broken, and by no means am I perfect. I’ve even broke a few hearts. But everyday is a winding road, and every heart broken is a new lesson learned, and new path carved.
If we become insecure, jealous people, it will never work out! Jealousy is one of the most unattractive qualities to me. From time to time, I have been known to be a jealous person. But that was because the relationships foundations were tainted with trust issues and infidelity. I will always try to conceal my jealousy. As for insecurities, we must take it upon ourselves to make that special someone feel like they are the only one for you. If they’re not, then why are you in it in the first place? Trust and communication is the foundation of a stable relationship. Take away that and it all crumbles from beneath you. Remember when loyalty and being in love was enough?
If my husband, for example, came home from a trip and told me that he had slept with a hooker, but out of respect for me, was ridden with guilt, and had to tell me the truth, I’d be very upset. However I’d probably forgive him. I am after his soul, not his body. Sex is merely physical.
“It’s not cheating unless you read poetry.”
I need someone who’s strong enough to let me be queen of my world, but still be the assertive male figure, an equal figure, not a dominating person, someone who will stand up to me and tell me when I am wrong. Someone I will respect, not someone I will walk all over. Where do you draw the line without being my bitch? I have had very subservient men in my life, but this bores me after a while. I need someone who is going to accept me for who I am and not try to change me. I never changed for anybody my entire life, why start now? I am unique, and an acquired taste. I am not for everybody. You either love me, or you hate me.
Love is fleeting, we all wind in and out of love throughout a lifetime. Some of us are afraid to fall in love again. I like to jump into things head over heels. Careless, some would say, but I say that I give 100% and I’m not afraid to have my heart broken. Maybe I’m addicted to the extreme heights of the rushes of being in love, but I have learned to deal with the anguished lows of sad breakups, and dramatic heartbreaks as well. Some people think I’m cold, because I can easily break up with someone on the opposite end…
“I’m not into this anymore, and I don’t want to take you for a ride.” Some say that would be cold, being said to a guy utterly head over heels in love with you, but I call it honest. Some people can’t handle the truth. But I think the truth is far better than lies and confusing a person hurt with rejection.
Someday I will be loved.
One moonlight night a Fox was prowling about a farmer’s hen-coop, and saw a Cock roosting high up beyond his reach.
“Good news, good news!” he cried.
“Why, what is that?” said the Cock.
“King Lion has declared a universal truce. No beast may hurt a bird henceforth, but all shall dwell together in brotherly friendship.”
“Why, that is good news,” said the Cock; “and there I see some one coming, with whom we can share the good tidings.” And so saying he craned his neck forward and looked afar off.
“What is it you see?” said the Fox.
“It is only my master’s Dog that is coming towards us. What, going so soon?” he continued, as the Fox began to turn away as soon as he had heard the news. “Will you not stop and congratulate the Dog on the reign of universal peace?”
“I would gladly do so,” said the Fox, “but I fear he may not have heard of King Lion’s decree.”
