Short Story: The Ant and the Grasshopper
Read the story once at fast pace to get the story. Read another time slowly to enjoy the clear, simple writing style. You shouldn't have to do much, just enjoy and your mind will unconsciously absorb it. Promise.




-----------------------------
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 toil an ear of corn he was taking to the nest.

"Why not come and chat with me," said the Grasshopper, "instead of toiling and moiling in that way?"

"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 toil.

When the winter came the Grasshopper had no food and 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 knew: It is best to prepare for days of need.

Do you remember La Fontaine and Nguyễn Văn Vĩnh?
Ve sầu kêu ve ve
Suốt cả mùa hè...

Đến kỳ gió bấc thổi,
Nguồn cơn thật bối rối...

I always save half of my salary for the difficult days. If I earn 10 dongs, I spend 4 dongs for the house expenses and 1 dong for my son & me.

You will ask me why and I will answer because I have no man standing by me so I must take care of myself when I'm getting older.

@ admin:

This story brings us a good lesson. I like reading fable stories of La Fonte, too.

Thank you admin.

It's good you have saving. I tried couple times but it did not work so I quit.

Once I came to see a palm reader (fortune-teller), he advised me not to involve in banking or cashier.

"You cannot keep money otherwise you will be in jail", he said.

You listen to the fortune-teller, you sell the rice seeds! :-))

It's hard to convince a Catholic, I know.

My boss when he was appointed to Vietnam, the organization had a record of 13 pages just analyzing his signature. And they are Catholic and not Vietnamese :)
