One night a villager could not sleep owing to a pain in his side. A doctor commented: “This pain is caused by him having eaten a certain leaf. I will be astonished if he lasts through the night, for the arrow of an enemy in his chest were better for him then the eating of such indigestible food!”
That very night the doctor died. Forty years have since passed and the villager yet lives.
If your life is destined to be long, no snake or sword will harm you. However, on the other hand when the fated day of death arrives, the antidote will kill you no less than the poison.
