The Unseen Enemy.

Aesop’s Fables : The Unseen Enemy.


A gnat, annoyed with a lion, for disturbing its sleep with its roaring, stung the beast on its snout.

The lion tried to crush it with its paws but without success.

The insect dodged the great cat’s claws and stung it again on its face.

Elated by its victory over the king of beasts, the gnat turned to gloat.

Unfortunately, there was a web in its path. It got caught in the web, and was devoured by the spider.

An insignificant foe is sometimes more dangerous than a mighty adversary because we’re not on guard against it.
