Fable Aesop
The Stag, the Wolf, and the Sheep
printer friendly version
A Stag asked a Sheep to lend him a measure of wheat, and
said that the Wolf would be his surety. The Sheep, fearing
some fraud was intended, excused herself, saying, "The Wolf
is accustomed to seize what he wants and to run off; and you,
too, can quickly outstrip me in your rapid flight. How then
shall I be able to find you, when the day of payment comes?"

Two blacks do not make one white.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
