According to the fable “The Ant and the Grasshopper” by Aesop, Ant was working hard to prepare the winter’s food, so he didn’t need to worry about the food in the winter. However, the grasshopper didn’t have food to eat as he always had fun. The author told us a lifestyle which is we need to work hard to prepare the future. In the other story “The Ant and the Grasshopper” by Somerset Mangham, George didn’t have a good life in the end even though he worked very hard.
The Main Idea
Instead of his brother, Tom who spent all of his time looking the fun had a lot of money. It showed that a different lifestyle with the fable. It told us that we allow having fun to relax. In my opinion, I agree with the lifestyle which is we don’t need to work too hard to forget to relax that was supported by Somerset Manghan.
In society, we need to enjoy life even during work, because nobody will predict what will happen tomorrow.
And if you always force on your work, you will lose a lot, such as you don’t know what’s the situation will like in the outside world and it will have less chance to communicate with your family. In my experience, my uncle who has his own Chinese restaurant always works in the kitchen. He has been in America for about 20 years, he spent most of his time in his restaurant. My mother often told him, “you do not do any more now. ” He answered that” I don’t believe that my restaurant will keep good without me.
One time, he went back to China as in the case. However, he still wanted to know everything about his restaurant from the call. He didn’t give him an opportunity to relax.
To Sum Up
I think everyone has the right to have fun, even though you are poor. When you are working, you can take a time to have fun. I know some people are enjoying life even they are working. Just we need to know how to arrange our time between working and enjoying. Posted by liting. lin at 2:23 PM
