A Wild Boar stood under a tree and rubbed his tusks against the
trunk. A Fox passing by asked him why he thus sharpened his
teeth when there was no danger threatening from either
huntsman or hound. He replied, "I do it advisedly; for it would
never do to have to sharpen my weapons just at the time I
ought to be using them."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
