The Ants and the Grasshopper

The Ants and the Grasshopper


The ants were spending a fine winter’s day drying grain collected in the summertime.

A grasshopper, quite hungry, passed by and begged for a little food.

The ants asked him, “Why didn’t you gather up food during the summer?” He replied, “I as too busy having fun to work. I passed the days singing.”

They then said in mockery: “If you were foolish enough to sing all the summer, you must dance without supper to bed in the winter.”

Moral: One can not get through life without a little work.
