Fable Aesop
The Sick Stag
printer friendly version
A Sick Stag lay down in a quiet corner of its pasture-ground. His
companions came in great numbers to inquire after his health,
and each one helped himself to a share of the food which had
been placed for his use; so that he died, not from his sickness,
but from the failure of the means of living.

Evil companions bring more hurt than profit.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
