The Wild Boar and the Fox (fable)

A WILD BOAR stood under a tree and rubbed his tusks against the trunk.

A Fox passing by asked him why he thus sharpened his teeth when there was no danger threatening from either huntsman or hound.

He replied,

“I do it advisedly; for it would never do to have to sharpen my weapons just at the time I ought to be using them.”
