Fable Aesop
The Shepherd And The Sheep
printer friendly version
A Shepherd driving his Sheep to a wood, saw an oak of unusual
size full of acorns, and spreading his cloak under the branches,
he climbed up into the tree and shook them down. The Sheep
eating the acorns inadvertently frayed and tore the cloak.
When the Shepherd came down and saw what was done, he
said, "O you most ungrateful creatures! You provide wool to make
garments for all other men, but you destroy the clothes of him
who feeds you."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
