The Bald Man and the Fly

A FLY bit the bare head of a Bald Man who, endeavoring to destroy

it, gave himself a heavy slap. Escaping, the Fly said mockingly,

"You who have wished to revenge, even with death, the Prick of a

tiny insect, see what you have done to yourself to add insult to

injury?' The Bald Man replied, "I can easily make peace with

myself, because I know there was no intention to hurt. But you,

an ill-favored and contemptible insect who delights in sucking

human blood, I wish that I could have killed you even if I had

incurred a heavier penalty."
