Remember Aesop's Fables? One of the most famous, "The Ant and the Grasshopper," tells of a careful ant that stored up food for the winter. The grasshopper put this task off until the last minute and would have starved during the winter if not for the ant’s help. The moral to the story: "It’s best to prepare for the days of necessity."
