 Terence (Publius Terentius Afer) once said...

The nets not stretched to catch the hawk, Or kite, who do us wrong; but laid for those Who do us none at all. [Lat., Non rete accipitri tenditur, neque miluo, Qui male faciunt nobis: illis qui nihil faciunt tenditur.]

In Hawks Quotes, by Terence (Publius Terentius Afer) , Source: Phormio (act II, sc. 2, l. 16), (Colman's translation)
