Fable Aesop
The Wolf And The Lion
printer friendly version
A Wolf, having stolen a lamb from a fold, was carrying him off to
his lair. A Lion met him in the path, and seizing the lamb, took it
from him.

Standing at a safe distance, the Wolf exclaimed, "You have
unrighteously taken that which was mine from me!"

To which the Lion jeeringly replied, "It was righteously yours, eh?
The gift of a friend?"

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
