Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
219. THE BULL AND THE CALF
Perry 531 (Phaedrus
A bull was struggling to squeeze his horns through a narrow entryway,
scarcely able to get inside his stable. A young calf then took it upon
himself to tell the bull which way he should turn his head. 'Hush,' said
the bull, 'I've known how to do this since before you were born!'
The person who tries to correct his superiors will recognize himself
in this fable.
