The Grasshopper and the Ants

THE ANTS were spending a fine winter's day drying grain collected in the summertime. A Grasshopper, starving with hunger, passed by and earnestly begged for a little food.

The Ants asked him, "Why didn't you store up food during the summer?' He replied, "I didn't have enough time for fun. I passed the days in singing and dancing."

They then said in scorn: "If you were foolish enough to sing all the summer, then you must dance hungry in the winter."


What MORAL did you get from this FABLE?
