The Man and the Wood
A Man came into a Wood one day with an axe in his hand
and begged all the Trees to give him a small branch,
which he wanted for a particular purpose. The Trees were
good-natured and gave him one of their branches. What
did the Man do but put it into an axe head, and soon set
to work cutting down tree after tree. Then the Trees saw
how foolish they had been in giving their enemy the
means of destroying themselves.
Beware what you give to future enemies
