It was a fine winter day, and the ants were storing away(贮存) all the food they had collected in the summer.
A very hungry arasshopper(蚂蚱) passed by and asked them for something to eat.
The ants asked him, “Why didn’t you collect any food during the summer?”
He replied, “I didn’t have any spare time — I spent the days singing.”
The they said, “If you were foolish(愚蠢的) enough to sing all summer, you must dance hungry to bed in the winter.”
MORAL: Prepare today for the needs of tomorrow.
