The Wolf and the Goat

A wolf seeing a goat feeding on the edge of a high precipice where he could not come at her, besought her to come down lower, for fear she should miss her footing at that dizzy height. "Moreover," said he, "the grass is far sweeter and more abundant here below." But the Goat replied; "Excuse me; it is not for my dinner that you invite me, but for your own."
