AESOP'S  FABLES               


190 - The Oak and the Woodcutters



The Woodcutter cut down a Mountain Oak and split it in pieces, making wedges of its own branches for dividing the trunk. 

The Oak said with a sigh, "I do not care about the blows of the axe aimed at my roots, but I do grieve at being torn in pieces by these wedges made from my own branches."

Is harder the suffering caused by the damage that is born from oneself than the one that comes from outside.
