The Swallow, the Serpent, and the Court of Justice

Aesop


A SWALLOW, returning from abroad and especially fond of dwelling with men, built herself a nest in the wall of a Court of Justice and there hatched seven young birds. A Serpent gliding past the nest from its hole in the wall ate up the young unfledged nestlings. The Swallow, finding her nest empty, lamented greatly and exclaimed: "Woe to me a stranger! that in this place where all others' rights are protected, I alone should suffer wrong."

Quote of the moment:
"But we'll never survive!" "Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has."
