A Shepherd driving his Sheep to a wood saw an oak
of unusual size full of acorns, and spreading his
cloak under the branches, he climbed up into the
tree and shook them down. The Sheep eating the
acorns inadvertently frayed and tore the cloak.
When the Shepherd came down and saw what was
done, he said, "O you most ungrateful creatures!
You provide wool to make garments for all other men,
but you destroy the clothes of him who feeds you."
