L'Estrange: A Dog and a Lion.

What a miserable Life dost thou lead, says a Dog to a Lion, to run starving up and down thus in Woods and Deserts, without either Meat, or Ease. I am fat and fair you see, and it costs me neither Labour nor Pains. Nay, says the Lion, you have many a good Bit no doubt on't; but then, like a Fool, you subject your self to the Clogs and Chains that go along with it: But for my own part, let him serve that serve can, and serve will, I'll live and die free.

That Man deserves to be a Slave, that Sacrifices his Liberty to his Appetite.
