Fables are short and brief literary narratives, usually in verse, that always end with a teaching message or an instructive moral, whose characters are almost always fictitious animals or objects.
A good way to entertain and educate children at the same time. This fable teaches children that there is a difference between losing what can be replaced and losing what cannot be repaired.
A father had two daughters. One married a gardener and the other a brick maker. After a while he went to visit the married man with the gardener, and asked about her situation. She said:
-Everything is wonderful with me, but I do have a special wish: that it rains abundantly every day so that the plants always have enough water.
A few days later he visited his other daughter, also asking about her condition. And she said:
-I have no complaints, just a special wish: that the days stay dry, without rain, with bright sun, so that the bricks dry and harden very well.
The father meditated: if one wishes rain, and the other dry weather, to which of the two do I attach my wishes?
Moral: Never try to please and look good with everyone. It will be impossible for you.
