Might makes right

A lion and a wild ass went out hunting together: the latter was to run down the prey by his superior speed, and the former would then come up and dispatch it. They met with great success; and when it came to sharing the spoil(次品,奖品). The lion divided it all into three equal portions. "I will take the first," said he, "Because I am King of the beasts, I will also take the second, because, as your partner, I am entitled to half of what remains, and as for the third-well, unless you give it up to me and take yourself off pretty quick, the third, believe me, will make you feel very sorry for yourself!"
