A story: The Ant and the Grasshopper

In a field one summer’s day, a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart’s content.
An Ant passed by bearing along with great effort an ear of corn he was taking to its nest.
“Why not come and chat with me.” said the Grasshopper, “instead of tolling and moiling away?.”
“I am helping to lay up food for the winter.” Said the Ant, “and recommend you to do the same.”

“Why bother about winter?.” said the Grasshopper, ”we have got plenty of food at present. ”
But the Ant went on its way and continued its toll.
When the winter came, the Grasshopper found itself dying of hunger, while it saw the ants distributing, every day, corn and grain from the stores they had collected in the summer.
Then the Grasshopper realized….Work hard, work today and you can reap the benefits.


Work hard, always do your best, never give up and amazing things will happen.
