Once, when winter came, a cicada that was starving approached the door of an anthill asking for food. The ants responded to his request, asking the following question:
-Why did you not make your food reservation during the summer like we did?
The cicada replied:
- I was singing happily all the time, and enjoying the summer to the fullest. If only I had known how hard winter is ...!
The ants told him:
-While we work hard during the summer to have supplies and to be able to spend the winter, you enjoyed and wasted time. So now ... keep dancing!
But the ants felt sorry for the situation and understood that the cicada had learned its lesson, so they finally shared their food with her.
Moral: Who wants to spend the winter well, while he is young, must take advantage of the time.
