The Golden Goose
Once upon a time, a man and his wife had the wonderful luck to have a goose which laid a golden egg daily. Blessed though they were, they soon began to think they were not getting rich fast enough.
They believed that if the precious goose has the ability to lay golden eggs, its entrails must be made of gold. And they assumed that if they could get all that expensive metal at once, they would get very rich quickly. So the man and his wife decided to kill the poor goose.
However, upon cutting the goose open, they were shaken to discover that its entrails were like that of any other goose! And it was too late for any regrets. The goose was gone forever.
Think twice before you act.
