Fable Aesop
The Man Bitten By A Dog
printer friendly version
A Man who had been bitten by a Dog went about in quest of
someone who might heal him. A friend, meeting him and learning
what he wanted, said, "If you would be cured, take a piece of
bread, and dip it in the blood from your wound, and go and give
it to the Dog that bit you." The Man who had been bitten
laughed at this advice and said, "Why? If I should do so, it would
be as if I should beg every Dog in the town to bite me."

Benefits bestowed upon the evil-disposed increase their means
of injuring you.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
