An ant and Chrysalis

An ant nimbly running in search of food came across a chrysalis that was close to its time of change. The chrysalis moved and this attracted the attention of the ant, who for the first time realized that it was a living thing. "Poor, pitiable animal!" cried the ant disdainfully, "what a sad fate yours is! While I can run around at my pleasure, you lie imprisoned in your shell." The chrysalis heard all this, but did not respond.

After a few days, when the ant passed the same way, nothing but the shell remained. Wondering what had happened to its content, the ant felt itselfsuddenly shaded and fanned by the gorgeous wings of a beautiful butterfly. "Behold in me," said the butterfly, "your much pitied friend!" So the butterfly rose in the air and was lost in the summer breeze.
