A lion was stalking through a jungle looking for trouble. Seeking to pick a fight with a passing tiger, he grabbed the tiger’s tail and demanded, “Who is the king of the jungle?”
The tiger answered meekly, “You are, O mighty lion.”
Next, the lion grabbed a monkey, asking, “Who do you say is the king of the jungle?”
“You, O mighty lion,” the monkey humbly replied.
Then the lion met an elephant and asked, “Who is the king of the jungle?” The elephant grabbed him with his trunk, whirled him around, and threw him up against a tree, leaving him bleeding and broken.
The lion got up slowly and licking his wounds, addressed the elephant: “Just because you don’t know the answer is no reason for you to get so rough.”
Unless you are an army officer, you can get better results by requests than you can by orders.
Lesson: No man can succeed and remain successful without the friendly cooperation of others.
