The Camel and the Arab

by Aesop

Is it that the level way through the desert is closed?

AN ARAB Camel-driver, having completed the lading of his Camel, asked him which he would like best, to go up hill or down. The poor beast replied, not without a touch of reason: Why do you ask me? Is it that the level way through the desert is closed?
