At one time a very large and strong Wolf was born among the
wolves, who exceeded all his fellow-wolves in strength, size,
and swiftness, so that they unanimously decided to call him

The Wolf, with a lack of sense proportioned to his enormous
size, thought that they gave him this name in earnest, and,
leaving his own race, consorted exclusively with the lions.

An old sly Fox, seeing this, said, "May I never make myself so
ridiculous as you do in your pride and self-conceit; for even
though you have the size of a lion among wolves, in a herd of
lions you are definitely a wolf."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
