The Sparrow And The Hare
A Hare pounced upon by an eagle sobbed very much and uttered cries
like a child. A Sparrow upbraided her and said, "Where now is thy
remarkable swiftness of foot? Why were your feet so slow?" While the
Sparrow was thus speaking, a hawk suddenly seized him and killed him.
The Hare was comforted in her death, and expiring said, "Ah! you who
so lately, when you supposed yourself safe, exulted over my calamity,
have now reason to deplore a similar misfortune."
