The Greedy Man Fable

The man was standing with sad looking face. The animal gathered around him and wondering why he was sad. One of them said "If we give him what we have, he might be happy".

The deer said to the man "Ask us, we will give what we have to you". The man said "I want sharper eyes". The eagle said to the man "You can have mine". The man said "I want stronger power". The bear said "You can have mine". The man said "I want knowledge of the underworld". The snake said "You can have mine". And so, it was happened until all the animals gave what was their best to the man. Then, the man left.

The deer said to the all of the animals "We have given the man all of our best. The man will be happy now". Suddenly the owl said to the animals "Now, since the man has everything that we have, I begin to worry". "Why ?" asked the animals. "Deep inside, the man has unsatisfied hunger. Our gift makes the man more hungry than before. He will asking, asking and asking some more, until our mother earth says to the man : I have given you everything that I have..There is nothing left from me anymore".
