Grasp All Lose All Story
One day a hungry dog was looking for food. He was walking to and fro to have some food. But he did not get any opportunity. At last, he was wandering around a butcher’s shop and seeking opportunity to steal a piece of meat. After a while, the butcher went to wash room leaving his shop empty.
The dog stole a piece of meat and ran away within a moment. Now, he was looking for a safe place to eat it. On his way there was a small bridge over a canal. He started to cross the canal. While crossing the bridge, he saw his reflection in the static clean water of the canal. He thought that another dog with a piece of meat was walking there. He became so much curious to have the piece of meat.
So, he barked at his reflection. Soon, his own piece fell into the water. To get it back, he jumped into the canal. But he failed to regain it. After hard labour he got on the bank of the canal and thought himself, “Grasp all, lose all”.
GREED BRINGS DOWNFALL Story
Once a farmer had a goose. It used to lay a golden egg every day. The farmer used to sell it in the market and within a short time, he became quite solvent. But his wife was very greedy. She wanted to be very rich overnight. She told herself, “Surely, there are a good number of golden eggs in its stomach. So, there’s no use of getting one egg a day. We can get all the eggs at a time by cutting the belly of the goose.” She suggested her husband do so. But her husband was very intelligent. He did not agree with her proposal. Next day when the farmer went to his farm, his greedy wife took a sharp knife and cut the bally of the goose. She did not find any egg. Rather the goose. died. Thus it is for her greed that lost all hopes of becoming prosperous.
