The Ant and the Grasshopper

The Ant and the Grasshopper
from Æsop’s Fables
One day an ass, upon hearing some grasshoppers chirping, was enchanted by their song and desired to possess the ability to sing as they did. He went to them and asked what sort of food they lived on that gave them such beautiful voices. The grasshoppers replied, “We live on the dew.” The ass resolved that from that moment forward he would live only upon dew, and soon died of hunger.
