Fable Aesop
The Flea And The Wrestler
printer friendly version
A Flea settled upon the bare foot of a Wrestler and bit him,
causing the man to call loudly upon Hercules for help. When
the Flea a second time hopped upon his foot, he groaned
and said, "O Hercules! if you will not help me against a Flea,
how can I hope for your assistance against greater antagonists?"

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
