Aesop's Fables

The Farmer And Fortune

A Farmer was ploughing one day on his farm when he turned up a pot of golden coins with his plough.
      
      He was overjoyed at his discovery, and from that time forth made an offering daily at the shrine of the Goddess of the Earth.
      
      Fortune was displeased at this, and came to him and said, "My man, why do you give Earth the credit for the gift which I bestowed upon you? You never thought of thanking me for your good luck; but should you be unlucky enough to lose what you have gained I know very well that I, Fortune, should then come in for all the blame."

Moral: Show gratitude where gratitude is due.
