Fable Aesop
The Dolphins, the Whales, and the Sprat
printer friendly version
The Dolphins and Whales waged a fierce war with each other. When
the battle was at its height, a Sprat lifted its head out of the waves
and said that he would reconcile their differences if they would
accept him as an umpire. One of the Dolphins replied, "We would far
rather be destroyed in our battle with each other than admit any
interference from you in our affairs."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
