     The Oak and the Woodcutters



THE WOODCUTTER cut down a Mountain Oak and cut it in pieces, making wedges of its own branches for dividing the trunk.

The Oak said with a sigh, "I do not care about the blows of the axe aimed at my roots, but I do grieve at being torn in pieces by these wedges made from my own branches."

Moral: Misfortunes springing from ourselves are the hardest to bear.
