Fable Number 173 ~ The Man Bitten by the Dog

A man who had just been badly bitten by a dog was looking for someone who could heal his wound. He ran into a man who told him, “Here is what you need to do: Let the blood from your wound drip onto a piece of bread and then feed the bread to the dog who bit you. If you do that, your wound will be cured.” 

The man who had been bitten by the dog replied, “But if I do that, every single dog in the city will want to bite me!”

Moral: If someone honors a wicked man, the wicked man will not return the favor, since his only friends are other wicked men like himself.
