I recall this fable I read when I was a kid. It was about a dog and a piece of meat.

One sunny day, a dog was fortunate enough to find a large and juicy piece of meat. Happily going his way with the meat in his mouth, the dog reached the side of a stream. Seeing his reflection in the water, the dog believed the image to be that of another dog also holding a piece of meat. Wishing to own the other dog’s meat, he opened his mouth and barked loudly. But just as his jaws came apart, the meat slipped away and fell into the swift waters of the stream.

 

I guess in certain pursuits in life, always remember to STOP and CHECK if the purpose of the pursuit is wise. If not you never know what consequences might come your way.
