The Fox and The Grapes
The Fox and The Grapes :
There was once a fox with an empty stomach who went in search of something to eat. He chanced upon a vineyard where large bunches of golden grapes hung from the vines above his head.
The fox jumped up and down trying to bite into a bunch of the grapes. But he fell short. He tried again and again with all his might. But he still failed to reach the grapes. He was obliged to give up the attempt but consoled himself as well as he could do by telling himself: 'It doesn't matter, because they weren't ripe yet.'
