The Grasshopper and the Ant

“The Grasshopper and the Ant” story teaches us a very important lesson that if you want to succeed tomorrow, you have to start working today. Those who do not plan for the long term will not succeed in the long term.

The Grasshopper and the Ant

one fine day in winter, some Ants were busy drying their store of corn which had got

rather damp during  a long spell of rain, presently up came a grasshopper and begged

them to spare her a few grains, for she said I’m simply starving; the ants stopped work

for a moment thought this was against their principles

the ant and the grasshopper

“may we ask?” said they. “What were you doing with yourself all last summer?!,

why didn’t you collect a store of food for the winter?!!”

“The fact is,” replied the grasshopper, “I was so busy singing that I hadn’t the time,”

“if you spent the summer singing,” replied the ants, “you can’t do better than spend

the winter dancing”, and they chuckled and went on with their work.
