The Wolf and the Horse

: Aesop's Fables

A WOLF coming out of a field of oats met a Horse and thus

addressed him: "I would advise you to go into that field. It is

full of fine oats, which I have left untouched for you, as you

are a friend whom I would love to hear enjoying good eating." The

Horse replied, "If oats had been the food of wolves, you would

never have indulged your ears at the cost of your belly."

Men of evil reputation, when they perform a good deed, fail to

get credit for it.
