Life Lesson #10

Library of Congress an Aesop Fable

The Fisherman & the Little Fish

A poor Fisherman, who lived on the fish he caught, had bad luck one day and caught nothing but a very small fry. The Fisherman was about to put it in his basket when the little Fish said:

“Please spare me, Mr. Fisherman! I am so small it is not worth while to carry me home. When I am bigger, I shall make you a much better meal.”

But the Fisherman quickly put the fish into his basket.

“How foolish I should be,” he said, “to throw you back. However small you may be, you are better than nothing at all.”

The moral of the story: A small gain is worth more than a large promise.

My Grandfather always said, “One in the hand is worth two in the bush.”

Remember! FOLLOWS and LIKES keep beans on the table. Than you all for the support that you have shown me.
