153 - The Ant and the Beetle



At summer time, an ant that was patrolling the field was gathering the grains of wheat and barley, keeping them to feed during the winter. A beetle saw her, and he was astonished of seeing her so occupied in an epoch in which all the animals, neglecting his works, give in to the good life.

Nothing answered the ant at that moment; but later, when the winter came and the rain was undoing the dungs, the hungry beetle went to ask to the ant for an alms of meal. Then now, answered the ant:

"Look, Beetle, if you had worked in the epoch at that I was doing it and you were making fun of me, now you would not lack the food."

When you have more than enough of what you receive with your work, keep a portion for when the times of scarcity come.
