Fable Aesop
The Wolf And The Horse
printer friendly version
A Wolf coming out of a field of oats met a Horse and thus
addressed him: "I would advise you to go into that field.
It is full of fine oats, which I have left untouched for you,
as you are a friend whom I would love to hear enjoying
good eating."

The Horse replied, "If oats had been the food of wolves,
you would never have indulged your ears at the cost of
your belly."

Men of evil reputation, when they perform a good deed,
fail to get credit for it.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
