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. Cf. Aesop 200 and 203.

    La perte de l’ung, est le profict de l’aultre.

    Ung fier Lyon, & ung Sanglier frendent
    Faisoient mortel combat gryphe, & dent.
    Le vaultour vint les veoir: & en print joye:
    Car l’ung ou l’aultre occis, sera sa proye.[1]

    Cecy semble estre dict des Princes Chre-
    stiens, faisans la guerre l’ung l’aultre, & du
    Turc, qui ce pendant regardant le debat, prent
    le fruict de leur perte, usurpant tousjours sur
    la Crestienne Europe.
