The Bald(秃头的) Man and the Fly

A fly bit the head of a bald(秃头的) man who, trying to kill it, only succeeded in hitting himself hard on the head.

Escaping(逃脱), the fly made fun of him, saying, “You, who have wished to revenge(报复), even with death, the bite of a tiny insect(昆虫), see what harm you have done to yourself in the process!”

The bald(秃头的) man replied, “I hurt myself by mistake(无意中), but you hurt me on purpose. I wish that I could have killed you, even if by doing so I had hurt myself even more!”

MORAL: Don’t hurt yourself to get revenge(报复) on another.
