The Hen and the Swallow

A HEN finding the eggs of a viper and carefully keeping them

warm, nourished them into life. A Swallow, observing what she

had done, said, "You silly creature! why have you hatched these

vipers which, when they shall have grown, will inflict injury on

all, beginning with yourself?'
