Quote #10

Once again the fox implored him to shoot him dead and cut off his head and paws. This time the prince did it, and no sooner was it done than the fox turned into none other than the brother of the beautiful princess, who was finally released from a magic spell that had been cast over him. (The Golden Bird.204)

Appearances can be deceiving. Which is why it's important to be nice to everyone you meet in fairy tales.
