The Farmer and The Golden Duck :
A farmer had many ducks in his house.
One of the ducks would lay a golden egg everyday.
He sold the golden egg and became rich.
One day, he thought that there would be more golden eggs in the stomach of the duck.
If he cut the stomach, he could take all the golden eggs and he would become rich in a very short period of time in stead of waiting for those eggs for many more days.
So, without any second thought, he took a knife andcut the stomach of the duck. But he found only one golden egg and felt very sad for his greedy attitude.
MORAL : Greed leads to huge loss.
