It is considered an Arab proverb but is often attributed to the Arthasastra a pre-fourth century Sanskrit text by Kautilya more known for its contents on politics and statecraft. But the book contains information and instructions about various other aspects of social life, including man's relationship with animals and plants. The saying appears to be a summary of some strategic advice given therein.
