     The Hen and the Golden Eggs

A COTTAGER and his wife had a Hen that lays a golden egg every day.

 They thought that the Hen must contain a great lump of gold inside it and in order to get the gold eggs they killed it.

Having done so, they found to their surprise that the Hen differed in no respect from their other hens.

 The foolish pair, thus hoping to become rich all at once, deprived themselves of the gain of which they were assured day by day.
