The Ants and the Grasshopper

The Ants were spending a fine winter’s day drying grain collected in the summertime. A Grasshopper, dying from hunger, passed by and earnestly begged for a little food.

The Ants asked him, “Why did you not treasure up food during the summer?”

He replied, “I didn’t have enough time. I passed the days in singing.”

They then said in derision: “If you were foolish enough to sing all the summer, you must dance supperless to bed in the winter.”

Moral: Plan ahead or don’t complain if things don’t work out.
