Cornix et Urna

Ecce cornix!

Cornix sitibúnda est et bíbere vult.

Ecce urna!

Cornix urnam ínvenit.

In urnae fundo est aqua.

Sed urna alta est, et aqua brevis.

Quod urna alta est, et aqua brevis, Cornix bíbere non potest.

Cornix cógitat: "Víribus meis, urnam evértam!"

Cornix alis vérberat et fórtiter ad urnam ádvolat.

Sed urna fírmiter stat et non movétur.

Cornix íterum cógitat:

"In urna est aqua, et bíbere volo."

"Sed urna fírmiter stat, et evértere non possum."

"Quid ergo fáciam?"

Cornix diu cógitat, deinde clamat:

"Euréka! Consílium hábeo!"

"Prope urnam cálculi sunt."

"Cálculos legam et in urnam mittam!"

"Sic aquam levabo et bibere potero!"

Ergo: Cornix rostro cálculos legit.

Cálculos in urnam mittit et sic aquam levat.

Hoc modo ingenióso Cornix felíciter bibit.

Fábula docet:

Ingénium plus valet quam vires.
