The Sea pleads helplessness.

Aesop’s Fables :The Sea pleads helplessness.

A shipwrecked man struggled mightily against the waves and was finally cast ashore, more dead than alive.

When finally he regained consciousness, he saw that the sea was as calm as a pond.

"How deceitful you are!" he shouted to the sea. "You draw men unto you showing your peaceful side but when they are in your power you wreak fury against them!"

The sea took the form of a woman to defend herself.

"Blame me not!" said the woman. "I'm always peaceful. It is the wind that creates waves and turns me into a monster."

Moral: Beware of people who are controlled by others.
