Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
309. THE WOLF AND THE DONKEY
Perry 392 (Romulus
The word of a wicked man can never be trusted. Listen to this fable,
The wolf paid a visit to the ailing donkey. He began to touch the donkey's
body and to ask him in what part of his body he felt the greatest pain.
The donkey answered, 'Wherever you touch me!'
The same is true of wicked people: even if they pretend to be helpful
and speak nicely, they are actually in a hurry to harm you.
