Aesop’s Fables: Hercules And The Wagoner

A man was driving a wagon

Along a rough country lane

When the wheels sank in a rut

The driver cried out in pain

He went down on his knees

To beg and pray and plead

“Oh Hercules, please help me

Help me in my need.”

Hercules then did appear

Addressed the man as thus

“Put your shoulders to the wheel

And never again pray to us

Unless you have done your best

To help yourself and strain

Or depend upon it you

Will henceforth pray in vain.”

  1. A man asked God for wealth. God pointed out to a castle and said it was filled with treasure and he could have it all. The man was thrilled and waited and waited and waited but nothing changed. He asked God again when he would get wealthy? God said ‘son as soon as you cross the moat’
