|276. The Fox And The Bramble|
A Fox, mounting a hedge, when he wa
s about to fall caught hold of a Bramble. Having pricked and grievously torn the soles of his feet, he accused the Bramble, because, when he had fled to her for assistance, she had used him worse than the hedge itself. The Bramble, interrupting him, said, "But you must really have been out of your senses to fasten yourself on me, who am myself always accustomed to fasten upon others."
一只狐狸爬上一个篱笆，正要跌下去时，它握住了一棵荆棘。 可是却被它戳得脚底都破了，感到非常的痛，它就向荆棘诉苦，因为它只向它求助，而它待它却比篱笆还不好。 荆棘打断它的话说：「我自己总是习惯于纠缠别人的，你却来纠缠着我，你也实在太傻了。」
