पञ्चतंत्र - लब्धप्रणश - कंटकेनेव कंटकम्

शत्रुमुन्मूलयेत्प्राज्ञः तीक्ष्णं तीक्ष्णेन शत्रुणा |
व्यथाकरं सुखार्थाय कंटकेनेव कंटकम् ||

- पञ्चतंत्र, लब्धप्रणश

A strong enemy must be vanquished by taking help of another enemy. To relieve the pain, a thorn must be taken out (of the foot) by using another thorn only.

- Panchatantra, Labdhapranasha
