327 - The Wasp and the Snake




A Wasp seated himself upon the head of a Snake and, striking him unceasingly with his stings, wounded him to death. The Snake, being in great torment and not knowing how to rid himself of his enemy, saw a wagon heavily laden with wood, and went and purposely placed his head under the wheels, saying, 

"At least my enemy and I shall perish together."


The suicide, when it is used to damage others, is only a mad consolation of those who recognizes themselves as cowards and defeated.
