Mensagem: 

Instead of you rewritng your way the text  below, I would like that you correct my  mistakes and choose words that are more suitable.  If you want to write your version. it will be welcome.  If you write only your version and do not correct my mistakes, it will be less helpful than if you only correct my mistakes. Who could do that for me?  I thank you in advance

 

Obs: I would be very pleased/happy/grateful if you would also correct the comments above.

 

                           The Eagle and the Arrow

 

An eagle resting/sitting on a crag was looking attentively all around him for his next meal.  A hunter, hidden in a fissure in the mountain and in search of game, saw the eagle above him and shot an arrow. The arrow shaft went through the chest of eagle and passed through its heart. Just before its death, the eagle stared/gazed at the arrow:


“What rotten luck! (How cruel my destiny is!),” he cried, “To die this way … But the greatest sorrow is to know that the arrow that is killing me has fletching of eagle feathers.”


Moral: The misfortunes to which we contribute are doubly bitter.
