The Fox And The Bramble
A Fox was mounting a hedge when he lost his footing and caught hold
of a Bramble to save himself. Having pricked and grievously tom the
soles of his feet, he accused the Bramble because, when he had fled
to her for assistance, she had used him worse than the hedge itself.
The Bramble, interrupting him, said, "But you really must have been
out of your senses to fasten yourself on me, who am myself always
accustomed to fasten upon others."
