This wax seal necklace tells the ancient Aseop children's fable of "The Lion and the Mouse". It depicts a a lion caught in a hunters net with a mouse gnawing at the ropes, above it is the Italian word "Pazienza" which translates to "PATIENCE". The Moral of the Story: A kindness is never wasted, even the smallest friend is worth while. Your wax seal pendant will come with the original Aesop fable.

A reminder that no small deed is ever too small.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.” ~ Plato
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” ~ Mark Twain
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you. ~Princess Diana

A lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws. A timid little mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the lion's nose. Woken from his nap, the lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny creature to kill her.

"Spare me!" begged the poor mouse. "Please let me go and some day I will surely repay you."

The lion was so amused at the idea of the little mouse being able to help the King of Beasts, that he lifted up his paw and let her go.

Some weeks later, the lion was caught in a net. The hunters, who desired to carry the lion alive to their King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him.

Just then the little mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the lion's sad plight, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes of the net, freeing the lion.

"You have helped me and now I have returned the favor. Was I not right - even a mouse can help a lion!" said the little mouse
