|58. The Sick Stag|
A sick Stag lay down in a quiet corner of its pa
sture-ground. His companions came in great numbers to inquire after his health, and each one helped himself to a share of the food which had been placed for his use; so that he died, not from his sickness, but from the failure of the me
ans of living.
Evil companions bring more hurt than profit.
一只生病的鹿，躺在草地上一个安静的角落。 它的同伴们，一队一队地来探望它的病况，每一只鹿，都是非常不客气的，将放在那里要给它吃的食物，吃去一部份；结果它死了，但是并不是死于它的病，而是死于饥饿。 坏的朋友，害多益少。
