The Man and the UFO

WHEN A MAN who had never yet seen a UFO, came across one by chance for the first time in the forest, he was so frightened that he nearly died with fear as he was probed and scanned. On meeting it for the second time, he was still much alarmed, but also very angry as it probed him. On seeing it the third time, he so increased in boldness that he went up to it and gouged a huge line across the alloy finish with his keys.

The Fox and the Lion (original fable)

WHEN A FOX who had never yet seen a Lion, fell in with him by chance for the first time in the forest, he was so frightened that he nearly died with fear. On meeting him for the second time, he was still much alarmed, but not to the same extent as at first. On seeing him the third time, he so increased in boldness that he went up to him and commenced a familiar conversation with him.

Acquaintance softens prejudices.
