Helping your Enemy to finish you!!!

The Eagle and the arrow 


An Eagle was soaring through the air when suddenly it heard the whizz of an Arrow, and felt itself wounded to death. 

Slowly it fluttered down to the earth, with its life-blood pouring out of it.

Looking down upon the Arrow with which it had been pierced, it found that the shaft of the Arrow had been feathered with one of its own plumes.

_”Alas!”_ it cried, as it died. _”We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.”_

《《《《We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction》》》》

Joseph Jacob, The Fables of Aesop: The Eagle and the Arrow, 75. (1884)
