Zeus and the greedy Ant

A story about greed
Author: Aesop

Zeus and the greedy ant Once upon a time there were no ants as we know them today. The ant used to be a greedy person who worked tirelessly in the fields, trying to scam his neighbors' labor despite his hard work.

Zeus, the king of the gods, resented the man's greed and one day turned him into an ant. However, the man never changed his ways. To this day, he walks the fields, picking the fruits and labor of others and setting them aside for himself.

The fable shows us that no matter how someone changes his appearance, if he has a vicious character, his behavior remains the same.
