The Golden Egg

Once upon a time, there was a farmer who had a poultry farm. One day in the morning, he saw a goose that laid a golden egg. The farmer was very happy and shared it with his wife. The egg provided enough money for the farmer and his wife for their day-to-day needs. The farmer and his wife lived a happy life for long thereafter.

So, the farmer cut the goose's stomach with a knife, to find no golden eggs but flesh. The farmer, realizing his foolish mistake, cried and repented on his wrongdoing but nothing could be done after that.
