A group of monkeys were sitting on a tree on a cold winter night.
One of the monkeys said, “I wish we could find some fire. It will help us to keep warm.”
Suddenly they noticed a flock of fireflies. The monkeys thought it was fire. They caught a firefly and put it under some dry leaves and started blowing at it.
Meanwhile, a sparrow came flying to its nest and saw what they were doing. The sparrow laughed. She said, “Hey silly monkeys, that’s a firefly, not real fire. I think all of you should take shelter in a cave.”
The monkeys did not listen to the sparrow. They continued to blow at the poor firefly.
After a while, the monkeys became very tired. They realized that the sparrow was right. The freezing monkeys set the firefly free and moved to a nearby cave.
Moral: No one is so wise that he can afford to wholly ignore the advice of others.
