It reminds me immediately of the story of Ymar in BOTNS, where he waits
under a tree
while the merchant goes by, and the beautiful woman, and finally follows
the dog.
But that suggests to me in turn that both incidents are allusions to
original, story which stands behind both, and maybe that's the one that
thinking of.

The message of humility makes me think of Christ's teachings, but it
also has the
feel of a Taoist or Buddist parable. Do any of our resident religious
hear bells ringing?
