The Man Bitten by a Dog

: Aesop's Fables

A MAN who had been bitten by a Dog went about in quest of someone

who might heal him. A friend, meeting him and learning what he

wanted, said, "If you would be cured, take a piece of bread, and

dip it in the blood from your wound, and go and give it to the

Dog that bit you." The Man who had been bitten laughed at this

advice and said, "Why? If I should do so, it would be as if I

should beg every Dog in the town to bite me."

Benefits bestowed upon the evil-disposed increase their means of

injuring you.
