Ex damno alterius utilitas.

One man’s loss is another man’s gain

XII.

Dum saevis ruerent in mutua vulnera telis,
Ungue leaena ferox, dente timendus aper,
Accurrit vultur spectatum, & prandia captat.
Gloria victoris, praeda futura sua est.[1]

While a lioness, vicious in claw, and a boar, fearsome for its tusks, were setting upon each other, inflicting mutual wounds with their savage weapons, a vulture hurried up to watch, lurking in expectation of a meal. The victor’s glory will belong to the one that gets the spoil.

Notes:

1. áCf. Aesop 200 and 203.

    El provecho d'el da˝o ageno.

    Ottava rhima.

    Estando en el hervor de la pelea
    Un bravo puerco, y un leon muy fiero
    Y mientras este y aquel venšer desea
    Como es de corašon diestro y gerrero,
    El beuytre comedor de alto lo ojea
    De aquel ageno mal muy plašentero.
    Sabiendo que ha de ser para el la presa
    De qualquier dellos que llevare empresa.
