If you hatch harm, you catch harm.

You get what you give.

Isn't it a war - the harm of all harms? Interestingly, if war excluded from that moral or somehow qualified it?

I wish to neither hatch nor catch harm. I would rather avoid harm--all harm, at all costs.

The Mouse, the Frog, and the Hawk Fable
An Aesop Fable
With the Moral: Harm hatch, harm catch.

A Mouse, by an unlucky chance, formed an intimate acquaintance with a Frog. The Frog one day, intent on mischief, bound the foot of the Mouse tightly to his own. Thus joined together, the Frog led his friend toward the pool in which he lived, until he reached the very brink, when suddenly jumping in, he dragged the Mouse in with him. The Frog enjoyed the water amazingly, and swam croaking about as if he had done a meritorious action. The unhappy Mouse was soon suffocated with the water, and his dead body floated about on the surface, tied to the foot of the Frog. A Hawk observed it, and, pouncing upon it, carried it up aloft. The Frog, being still fastened to the leg of the Mouse, was also carried off a prisoner, and was eaten by the Hawk.

What's come to my mind, is the following:-
Those who are promoters of harmful thoughts, ideas and actions, will, at some later time, be the recipient of similar thoughts, ideas and actions.

Nice way to let us read the Aesop tale: 'The Mouse, the Frog, and the Hawk'.

Not sure whether this is baby talk or his last words. Reminds of Hal in 2001.

Boy, for not hatching any harm, I sure have reaped a lot of Hell in this life. I cannot imagine what it would be like if cruel spirited and vindictive. Being carjacked is a good example. Love the frog & mouse fable.
