Through his fables, Aesop, a Phrygian slave who lived in the sixth century B.C., taught important lessons about behavior. One of his best:

A cat ate nearly all the mice in a house. Finally, only the smartest mice were left, and they refused to leave their holes. Trying to fool them, the cat dangled by her back legs from a peg on the wall, playing dead so the mice would come out and she could eat them. They were too smart, though, and didn’t emerge.

The moral: Smart people can’t be tricked when dangerous people suddenly change their behavior
