The Ass and the Grasshopper By Aesop’s Fables

Moral: Where one may live, another may starve.
An Ass, having heard some Grasshoppers chirping, was highly enchanted; and desiring to possess the same charms of melody, demanded what sort of food they lived on, to give them such beautiful voices. They replied: The dew. The Ass resolved that he would live only upon dew, and in a short time died of hunger.
