Taken from the November 1958 Bank of Wiggins Insert The Goose with the Golden Egg According to Aesop a farmer found an egg of pure gold in the nest of his goose. And every morning thereafter the goose laid a golden egg for him until the farmer pros- pered beyond his fondest dreams. But, when the miserly farmer grew rich he went greedy and grew impatient. Thinking to get all the gold the goose could give at once, he killed the goose and opened it to find--absolutely nothing. And as Aesop so truly moralizes: "Greed oft overreaches itself."rhough 25 cen- turies have passec[ since Aesop, human nature has not changed much, if any. So often we refuse to letweU enough one-- we still kill the geese that lay the golden eggs and suffer the financial conse- quences. Member i~ .r!,
