Zeus and the stay-at-home Tortoise
A story about humble life
When Zeus, the king of the gods, wanted to marry,
he invited all the animals to his wedding.
All the animals came, only the tortoise was missing, and Zeus couldn't figure out why -
so he asked the tortoise the reason why he didn't attend the festivities.
The turtle replied, "There's just no place like home!".
Zeus got angry with the turtle and taught it a lesson to remember: he made it wear its shell on its back forever.
