Appearances are deceptive


There once lived a busy little ant in a garden. One day he came across a chrysalis that was hanging from the leaf of a plant.

Going closer, he saw the creature unable to do anything but move its tail. “You poor creature. What a sad fate you have. While I can run about everywhere, you lie here imprisoned in your cocoon.”

A few days later when the ant passed by, he peered into the cocoon but saw only an empty shell.

“Behold in me,” said the chrysalis, which had changed into a most beautiful butterfly. “I can go to places where your legs can never reach and see things you can only dream of.” So saying the butterfly rose in the air and flew away.

“Appearances are deceptive”
