The Goose with the Golden Eggs
A man in the country went to see the nest of his goose. And he could hardly believe what he saw. He had to pinch himself to be sure he wasn't dreaming.
His goose laid an egg of pure gold!
Every morning, he went back to the nest and, always, he found a golden egg.
As he sold them at a high price, he became richer and richer.
But as he became richer, he became more greedy.
One day, he became impatient. He thought, "I'd better cut open the goose and get all the golden eggs at once."
So, he killed the goose and opened it -- but he found nothing. What's worst, he had killed the goose that had laid the golden eggs.
Moral Lesson: "Greed gains nothing, loses everything."
