The Wolf and the Lion (fable)

A WOLF, having stolen a lamb from a fold, was carrying him off to his lair. A Lion met him in the path, and seizing the lamb, took it from him. Standing at a safe distance, the Wolf exclaimed,

“You have unrighteously taken that which was mine from me!”

To which the Lion jeeringly replied,

“It was righteously yours, eh? The gift of a friend?”
