L'Estrange: A Bear and Bees.

A Bear was so enrag'd once at the Stinging of a Bee, that he ran like mad into the Bee-Garden, and over-turn'd all the Hives in revenge. This Outrage brought them out in whole Troops upon him; and he came afterwards to bethink himself, how much more advisable it had been to pass over one Injury, than by an unprofitable Passion to provoke a Thousand.

Better pass over an Affront from one Scoundrel, than draw the whole Herd of the Mobile about a Man's Ears.
