      The Wolf and the Goat

There was a Wolf who once saw a Goat feeding at the summit of a steep rock face, where he had no chance of reaching her.

 He called to her and earnestly begged her to come lower down, lest she fall by some calamity; and he added that the meadows lay where he was standing, and that the herbage was most tender.

She replied, "No, my friend, it is not for the pasture that you invite me, but for yourself, who are in want of food."
