Advice from a Stranger

By all means, he shouldn’t even be listening to what a fox has to say, not only because of the stereotype associated with the animal, but also because they’ve never met before. But he’s not as smart as his brothers are, and that makes him more daring because pessimism is found right behind knowledge.

So he listens with half an ear, and still does what he thinks is best, even though being a half-fool is worse than being a complete fool, because at least complete fools have the power of sympathy on their side.

As it is, he becomes a lukewarm character; the Humpty Dumpty that sits on the wall.
