One clear winter’s day, an Ant dragged out some grains of food to dry in the sun. A hungry Grasshopper passing by asked the Ant to share some of the food.
Why do you come to me for food?” asked the Ant. “What were you doing during the summer?”
“Oh”, replied the Grasshopper, “I spent the summer singing.”
“Well, then,” said the Ant, “you sang all summer, you can dance all winter.”
The story shows that there’s a time for work, and a time for play
