The Camel and the Giraffe
 
Once, the camel and the giraffe quarreled and quarreled.
They brought offences each other; or the giraffe has a neck too long or the camel has the hump too big.
One day the savanna burned and the fire drove away them in the desert. They caught only to take something to eat and a little water.  On the way, the camel kept food for the giraffe, said: "I have enough reserves in my hump!" When they arrived to an oasis came the turn of the giraffe to reward the gesture of the camel because it has a long neck, it torn leaves by palm trees and it gave them to the giraffe. By then the camel and the giraffe remain friends.
A friend in need is a friend indeed!

 Cãmila si girafa
Odatã, cãmila si girafa se certau continuu. Ele se jigneau, amintind fiecare de defectele celeilalte: ba cã girafa are gâtul prea lung sau cãmila are cocoasa prea mare.

Într-o zi savana arse si focul le alungã pe amândouã în desert. Apucaserã doar sã ia câte ceva de mâncare si putinã apã.
Pe drum cãmila îi pãstrã mâncarea girafei, spunând: "Eu am destule rezerve în cocoasa mea!".
Când ajunserã la o oazã, veni rândul girafei sã rãsplãteascã gestul cãmilei; pentru cã avea gâtul lung, aceasta rupse frunze de palmieri si le dãdu cãmilei.
De atunci cele douã au rãmas prietene.
Prietenul la nevoie se cunoaste!
