The Vine and the Goat

A VINE was luxuriant in the time of vintage with leaves and grapes. A Goat, passing by, greeted the Vine. The Vine addressed him and said: "I shall not have to wait long for my just revenge; I shall provide the wine to pour over you when you are led as a victim to the sacrifice."

"What did I ever do to you?" asked the Goat.

"I'll think of something," replied the Vine. "And then you're going down."

The Vine and the Goat (original fable)

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."
