Once a dog was very hungry. In his search of food, he passed by a butcher’s shop and stole a big piece of meat and ran away. He was looking for a safe place to eat the meat alone. He went to a nearby jungle. There was a stream in the way with a narrow bridge over it. The dog began to cross the bridge. In the middle of the bridge, he looked down into the stream and saw his reflection in the water. He thought it another dog with a large piece of meat in his mouth. The dog was very greedy. He at once, decided to snatch the large piece of meat from the dog in the water. He barked at the dog in the water. But as soon as he opened his mouth, his own piece of meat fell into the water. This made him angrier. He jumped into the water to fight with that dog. As he did so, the reflection in the water disappeared. He could find neither the dog nor his piece of meat. In this way, his greed made him go home hungry.
- Greed is a curse.
- Something is better than nothing
- All covet, all lose
