The Cock and the Jewel

A cock was scratching the ground in a farmyard in search of food for himself and his hens, when he happened to turn up a jewel. Feeling quite sure that it was something precious, but not knowing exactly what to do with it, he remarked, “You’re undoubtedly a very fine thing for those who appreciate your worth.
But I’d rather have just one grain of delicious barley than all the jewels in the world.

The value of an object is in the eyes of the beholder
