The Man and the Wood

af-axe

A Man came into a Wood one day with an axe head in his hand, and begged all the Trees to give him a small branch which he wanted for a particular purpose.

The Trees were good-natured and gave him one of their branches. What did the Man do but fix it into the axe head, and soon set to work cutting down tree after tree.

Do not give your enemy the means of destroying you.
