Fable 105 - The Hind Afflicted by Deformity
A hind, rendered congenitally disabled by being born with only one eye, went to the seashore to browse, turning her good eye to
the land to watch out for hunters and the blind eye towards the sea, from whence she expected no danger. But some boatmen-poachers
were sailing along that part and they caught sight of her, adjusted their course, and mortally wounded her.
While rendering up her life she said to herself:
‘Truly I am wretched; I was watching the land which I believed was full of danger and expected no harm from the sea,
which has been much more perilous.’
It is thus that often our anticipation is mistaken: the things which seem troublesome to us turn to our advantage,
and those things which we hold beneficial show themselves to be injurious.
