Index Aesop's Fables with lessons and morals

A wolf who had been bitten by a dog, was lying on the ground all wounded. Viewing the impossibility of procuring food in that situation, he asked a sheep that passed through there to bring him some water from the nearby river.

-If I bring water to drink - he said, I myself will take care of my food.

-If you carry water for drinking - he said the sheep-, I will attend your dinner.

It always provides the true background of the seemingly innocent proposals of evildoers.
