The Foolish Astrologer
No Thumbnail Available
One of twenty in the series, found near the counter as we were settling up a large order of books. The astrologer here, who wears glasses and uses multiple telescopes, falls into a ditch rather than a well. The passerby who pulls him from the ditch has the key line: If you could not see the ditch, how can you predict the future? The moral is Worrying too much about the future makes us ignore the present. Slick computer-generated art on sixteen pages of a pamphlet.
