One day a dog stole a piece of meat from a butcher’s shop. He started running away with the piece to a place of safety. There he would eat it quietly without any disturbance. On his way to that safe place, he had to cross a foot bridge over a clear stream. When he had crossed half of the bridge he looked down. He saw his own reflection in the water. He thought the reflection to be another dog with another piece of meat. As he was a greedy dog, he decided to have that piece of meat also. Immediately he snarled and made a grab for the other dog’s meat. As the greedy dog opened his mouth the piece of meat dropped down and fell into the stream. Thus he lost his own piece.
Moral: Grasp all, lose all.
