Fable Aesop
The Dog And The Oyster
printer friendly version
A Dog, used to eating eggs, saw an Oyster and, opening his mouth
to its widest extent, swallowed it down with the utmost relish,
supposing it to be an egg. Soon afterwards suffering great pain in
his stomach, he said, "I deserve all this torment, for my folly in
thinking that everything round must be an egg."

They who act without sufficient thought, will often fall into
unsuspected danger.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
