Aesop was a storyteller who lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BC. This story is part of his collection of tales known as "Aesop's Fables," which did not survive in writing but were passed down by people retelling them. They have deeply influenced children’s literature and modern storytelling culture. Following is one of Aesop's fables.
Two men were traveling together when a bear suddenly met them on their path. One of them climbed up quickly into a tree and concealed himself in the branches. The other, seeing that he might be attacked, fell flat on the ground, and when the bear came up and poked him with his snout, and smelled him all over, the man held his breath and feigned the appearance of death as much as he could. The bear soon left him, for it is said that bears will not touch a dead body.
When the bear was gone, the other traveler descended from the tree and jocularly inquired of his friend what it was that the bear had whispered in his ear.
"He gave me this advice," his companion replied. "Never travel with a friend who deserts you at the approach of danger."
