Phaedrus - The fox and the grapes

Driven by hunger, the fox was trying to take the grapes from a high vine, jumping with all his strength, but he could not touch it; then leaving he said:
"It is not yet ripe; I do not want to pick it unripe."
Whoever belittles in words what he is not able to do, will have to refer to himself this example.

[ Fame coacta vulpes alta in vinea
Uvam appetebat summis saliens viribus;
Quam tangere ut non potuit, discedens ait:
"Nondum matura est; nolo acerbam sumere"

Qui facere quae non possunt verbis elevant,
Ascribere hoc debebunt exemplum sibi.]
