The Ants and the Grasshopper

The Ants were spending a fine winter's day drying grain collected in the summertime. 

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 enough. 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."

Always try to be prepared for the days of necessity.
