A Kid standing on the roof of a house, out of harm's way, saw
a Wolf passing by and immediately began to taunt and revile him.
The Wolf, looking up, said, "Sirrah! I hear thee: yet it is not thou
who mockest me, but the roof on which thou art standing."

Time and place often give the advantage to the weak over
the strong.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
