He thought of how he had been pursued and scorned

----
He thought of how he had been pursued and scorned

He thought of how he had been pursued and scorned, and now he heard them all say that he was the most beautiful of all beautiful birds. The lilacs bent their boughs right before him, and the bright sun was warm and cheering, and he rustled his feathers and raised his slender neck aloft, saying with exultation in his heart: 'I never dreamt of so much happiness, when I was that ugly duckling!'

 

The Ugly Duckling
Hans Christian Anderson
