A poor fisherman who lived by some of the fish he caught, and eating the rest, had bad luck one day as he caught nothing but a fry. the fisherman was about to put it into his basket, when the little fish cried ''Please spare me, mr fisherman,i am so tiny that it’s not worthwhile to carry me home. When i grow bigger ,you can catch me again and enjoy a better meal. But the fisherman took no chances. he quickly put the fish inside the basket. ''how foolish i would be to throw your back, ''he said, ''however small you may be, it is better to eat something than nothing, to eat.
