yoma 83

the bark that cannot be heard
the eye that cannot see
and the knowledge of names that cannot warn

(on this page is discussed various remedies, and their effectiveness. Including being bitten by a mad dog  - a sign of the dog's madness is that it barks silently; how to cure a particular illness that causes blindness; and finally a strange tale of R. Meir travelling, who knew how to decipher from names if a person is trustworthy. but does not share his suspicions with his fellow travellers, who end up being robbed by an inn-keeper. who in turn eventually kills his wife when she returned the money)
