The Three Tradesmen - Aesop

This quote was added by aeronca
Once there was a city expecting to be attacked, and accordingly, a meeting was called to discuss the best means to defend it. A bricklayer claimed that brick was the best way to fortify the city. A carpenter suggested that timber was better. Finally a currier stood up and said, "Sirs, when all is said and done, there is nothing in the world like leather." Every man for his trade.
