Fable Aesop
The Eagle And The Arrow
printer friendly version
An Eagle sat on a lofty rock, watching the movements of a Hare
whom he sought to make his prey. An archer, who saw the Eagle
from a place of concealment, took an accurate aim and wounded
him mortally. The Eagle gave one look at the arrow that had
entered his heart and saw in that single glance that its feathers
had been furnished by himself. "It is a double grief to me," he
exclaimed, "that I should perish by an arrow feathered from my
own wings."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
