278 - The Vine and the Goat



A Vine was luxuriant in the time of vintage with leaves and grapes. 

A Goat, passing by, nibbled its young tendrils and its leaves. The Vine addressed him and said: 

"Why do you thus injure me without a cause, and crop my leaves? Is there no young grass left? But I shall not have to wait long for my just revenge; for if you now should crop my leaves, and cut me down to my root, I shall provide the wine to pour over you when you are led as a victim to the sacrifice."

The maltreatments done with intention, sooner or later return to whom did them, often under a different appearance.
