Summary

Anecdote about wise advice.

A man taking a bull to the àirigh [shieling, summer pasture] was passing through a dangerous, rocky place when the bull began to bellow to some cows that it heard in the distance. The foolish man was telling it to be quiet, but another man told him, "Look to your feet, and mind your God." The man’s words are repeated in Gaelic.
