A Bull was bitten by a Mouse and, angered by the wound, tried
to capture him. But the Mouse reached his hole in safety. Though
the Bull dug into the walls with his horns, he tired before he could
rout out the Mouse, and crouching down, went to sleep outside
the hole. The Mouse peeped out, crept furtively up his flank, and
again biting him, retreated to his hole. The Bull rising up, and not
knowing what to do, was sadly perplexed. At which the Mouse said,
"The great do not always prevail. There are times when the small
and lowly are the strongest to do mischief."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
