Fable Aesop
The Doe And The Lion
printer friendly version
A Doe hard pressed by hunters sought refuge in a cave belonging
to a Lion. The Lion concealed himself on seeing her approach, but
when she was safe within the cave, sprang upon her and tore her
to pieces.

"Woe is me," exclaimed the Doe, "who have escaped from man,
only to throw myself into the mouth of a wild beast."

In avoiding one evil, care must be taken not to fall into another.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
