The Stag at The Pool

A Stag admired his antlers in a pool but was chased away by a hunter. The hunter was able to catch up when the Stag got his antlers caught in a tree. We often despise what is most useful to us.

The Hart and The Vine

Do not mistreat those who help you. A Hart (stag) hides from hunters in vines. The Hart starts to nibble on the vines and gives himself away. Too bad. Do not mistreat those who help you.

The Eagle and The Arrow

An Eagle flying was hit by an Arrow. Looking back at it, the Eagle saw feathers from an Eagle on the Arrow. What a great irony! We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
