Lupus In Fabula

Awaited and Unexpected


Lupus in Fabula arrives when everyone talks about it, when everyone expects it. It turns to be unexpected in the taste and the sensations it gives.
 
The saying lupus in fabula is used when a person or a thing arrives at the exact moment when someone is talking about it or him.
The saying comes from a tale by Phaedrus, well-known tale writer who lived in Rome during the 1st century. 
 

The wolf and the lamb.


Longing for water, to a single brook came the Lamb and the Wolf. High up the stream the Wolf was, down the bank was the Lamb. Then, the ravenous roused his voice and started umbrage taking at the Lamb.
“How dare you muddy the water I'm drinking?” And the meek “Please, how should I do as you complain, if it's from you to me the stream descends?” By truth bewildered, says he, “Six months ago you talked behind my back”. “This cannot be, Sir”, the lamb replied “'cause six months ago I was not” “Thus it was your old ram, the one who did”. And take it and leave it, but wrong was he.
To those was written this who never want to admit how wrong they are and with any pretence always try to oppress the innocent.
