Fable Aesop
The Crow And The Sheep
printer friendly version
A troublesome Crow seated herself on the back of a Sheep.
The Sheep, much against his will, carried her backward and
forward for a long time, and at last said, "If you had treated
a dog in this way, you would have had your deserts from his
sharp teeth."

To this the Crow replied, "I despise the weak and yield to the
strong. I know whom I may bully and whom I must flatter;
and I thus prolong my life to a good old age."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
