Fable Aesop
The Prophet
printer friendly version
A Wizard, sitting in the marketplace, was telling the fortunes of
the passers-by when a person ran up in great haste, and
announced to him that the doors of his house had been broken
open and that all his goods were being stolen. He sighed heavily
and hastened away as fast as he could run. A neighbor saw him
running and said, "Oh! you fellow there! you say you can foretell
the fortunes of others; how is it you did not foresee your own?"

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
