THUMBLING AS JOURNEYMAN
A certain tailor had a son, who happened to be small, and no bigger than a Thumb, and on this account he was always called Thumbling. He had, however, some courage in him, and said to his father, “Father, I must and will go out into the world.” “That’s right, my son,” said the old man, and took a long darning-needle and made a knob of sealing-wax on it at the candle, “and there is a sword for thee to take with thee on the way.”

“Since you are so kind as to think of me, dear father,” answered Beauty, “I should like to have you bring me a rose, for we have none in our garden.”
It was not that Beauty cared so much for a rose, but she did not want it to look as if she were trying to be better than her sisters, who would have said she refused only to be praised.
