The Two Men Who Were Enemies
Two Men, deadly enemies to each other, were sailing in the same vessel.
Determined to keep as far apart as possible, the one seated himself
in the stem, and the other in the prow of the ship. A violent storm
arose, and with the vessel in great danger of sinking, the one in
the stern inquired of the pilot which of the two ends of the ship
would go down first. On his replying that he supposed it would be
the prow, the Man said, "Death would not be grievous to me, if I could
only see my Enemy die before me."
