Perry's Index to the Aesopica
Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:
THE WOLF, THE FOX AND THREE TRUE THINGS
A wretched fox had fallen into the clutches of a wolf. She begged the wolf to
spare her life and not to kill her, old as she was. The wolf said, 'By Pan,
I will let you live if you tell me three true things.' The fox said, 'First,
I wish that we had never met! Second, I wish you had been blind when we did
meet! Third, and last of all, I hope that you do not live out this year, so
that we will never meet again!'
