The Bald Man and the Fly

Written on June 6, 2011 – 9:02 pm | by talkingdictionary

There was once a bald man who sat down after work on a hot summer's day. A fly came up and kept buzzing about his bald pate, and stinging him from time to time.

The man aimed a blow at his little enemy, but his palm came on his head instead; again the fly tormented him, but this time the man was wiser and said:

"You will only injure yourself if you take notice of despicable enemies."
