Lesson #80:

(19 November 2018)

“Kill not the goose that lays the golden eggs.”

(English) Meaning: Anyone who claims more than his is already receiving is very likely to get nothing at all in the future. The origin is from a Greek fable which tells a man who possessed but killed the goose that laid one golden egg every day because he wanted all the eggs at once, got nothing at all in the future.
