The Shepherd and the Wolf

by Aesop

A SHEPHERD once found a young Wolf, and brought it up, and after a while taught it to steal lambs from the neighboring flocks. The Wolf, having shown himself an apt pupil, said to the Shepherd: Since you have taught me to steal, you must keep a sharp look-out, or you will lose some of your own flock.

Moral:
The vices we teach may be practiced against us.
