--from Aesop's Fables Translated by George Tyler Townsend

     WHEN A FOX who had never yet seen a Lion, fell in 

with him by chance for the first time in the forest, he was 

so frightened that he nearly died with fear.  On meeting him

for the second time, he was still much alarmed, but not to

the same extent as at first.  On seeing him the third time, 

he so increased in boldness that he went up to him and 

commenced a familiar conversation with him. 

     Acquaintance softens prejudices.
