THE DANCING FISH

Page of 1

Once there was a fisherman who played sweet music on his flute. One day, he took his flute and fish basket, and sat on a high rock to catch fish. He began to play his flute hoping that the fish attracted by the sweet music of his flute would leap into his basket. But no fish came around. The fisherman was disappointed.
He went home to return with his net and cast it in the water. He caught more than a basketful of fish. The fish were still alive, twisting and jumping in the basket.
“What stupid fish!” exclaimed the fisherman,“When I played the flute, they didn’t dance, but now, when I am not playing my flute, they are dancing.”
Moral : Casting pearls before a swine is worthless.
