A Wolf, sorely wounded and bitten by dogs, lay sick and maimed
in his lair. Being in want of food, he called to a Sheep who was
passing, and asked him to fetch some water from a stream
flowing close beside him. "For," he said, "if you will bring me drink,
I will find means to provide myself with meat."

"Yes," said the Sheep, "if I should bring you the draught, you
would doubtless make me provide the meat also."

Hypocritical speeches are easily seen through.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
