Boy and Peanut

Once a boy found a jar lying by on his way to home. It had a narrow-neck and was full of peanuts. Seeing the peanuts, boy wanted to eat it. So, he hastily put his hand into the jar and held as many peanuts as his hand could grasp. But when he pulled it out, he couldn′t do so. So, he felt disappointed and started crying.

A man was looking at the boy from a distance. He came to the boy and said, Don′t be haste. If you take half peanuts at the same time, you can pull your hand out. You can take other half with a second trial.

The boy did as the man said and was happy to get the peanuts. He thanked the man and went away.

Moral: Haste makes Waste.
