Fable Aesop
The Hawk, the Kite, and the Pigeons
printer friendly version
The Pigeons, terrified by the appearance of a Kite, called upon
the Hawk to defend them. He at once consented. When they
had admitted him into the cote, they found that he made more
havoc and slew a larger number of them in one day than the
Kite could pounce upon in a whole year.

Avoid a remedy that is worse than the disease.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
