The Goat and the Goatherd

A goat had strayed from the herd and the goatherd was trying all he could to bring him back to his companions. When by calling and whistling he could make no impression on him, at last, taking up a stone, he struck the goat on the horn and broke it. Alarmed at what he had done, he besought the goat not to tell his master. But, he replied; "O most foolish of goatherds! My horn will tell the story, though I should not utter a word."

Facts speak plainer than words.
