Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney




DOG once gave chase to a Hare. Having not long since made a good meal, the Dog was not hungry, and so was not in haste to end the sport by killing the Hare.


At times he would snap at his prey, and at times play with him and lick [120] him with his tongue, till at last the bewildered Hare cried:

"Pray tell me, are you an enemy or a friend? If a friend, why do you bite me so? and if an enemy, why do you caress me?"

No one can trust a person who is neither the one thing nor the other.
