Grapes are Sour

A fox was very hungry and was moving here and there in search of food. He entered a forest where there were grape trees. The grapes were ripe and looked very fine. The fox was very hungry. He said, “I must get some of these grapes. They must be very sweet.” He jumped up to reach the grapes. But the grapes were hanging high up. So he could not get at them. He tried again and again but failed.

At last, he found that it was useless for him to try any more. He gave up hope. Finally decided to leave the place and consoled himself saying, “The grapes are sour. I have no desire to enjoy them anyway.”


Moral of the story: ‘Never try to overreach yourself.’
