Mightier Strength than Tongue (from the Fables of Mkhitar Gosh)
Ընդդէմ կայ առակս հպարտ մտաց, որ յուսան ի լեզուանութիւնս իւրեանց. իսկ գիտելի է, զի հզաւր է զաւրութիւն քան զլեզու։
The plants were wondering whom they should appoint for their sentry. The hawthorn and others like it boasted, saying: "Since we are strikers, it is fitting that we be [sentry]." As they were so gabbing, asses and camels came, ate and trampled [the hawthorn] which dried up and was carried off by the winds.
This fable opposes proud thoughts which thrive on talk. However, it is known that might is more powerful than the tongue.
