The Ants and the Grasshopper

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The ants were employing a fine winter's day in drying grain collected in the summer time. A Grasshopper, perishing with famine, passed by and earnestly begged for a little food. 

The Ants inquired of him: "Why did you not treasure up food during the summer?"

He replied: "I had not leisure; I passed the days in singing." 

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

Moral : Idleness brings want.
