    The Bowman and Lion

 There was a very skillful Bowman who went to the mountains in search of game, but all the beasts of the forest appeared before him.

The Lion alone challenged him to fight. The Bowman immediately shot out an arrow and said to the Lion: "I send to you my messenger, that from him you may learn what I myself shall be when I beat you."

The wounded Lion rushed away in great fear, and when a Fox who had seen it all happen told him to be of good courage and not to back off at the first attack he replied: "You counsel me in vain; for if he sends so fearful a messenger, how shall I abide the attack of the man himself?'

Moral: Be on guard against men who can strike from a distance.
