Fable Aesop
The Goat And The Ass
printer friendly version
A Man once kept a Goat and an Ass. The Goat, envying the Ass
on account of his greater abundance of food, said, "How
shamefully you are treated: at one time grinding in the mill, and
at another carrying heavy burdens"; and he further advised him
to pretend to be epileptic and fall into a ditch and so obtain rest.
The Ass listened to his words, and falling into a ditch, was very
much bruised. His master, sending for a leech, asked his advice.
He bade him pour upon the wounds the lungs of a Goat. They at
once killed the Goat, and so healed the Ass.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
