Aesop, that master storyteller of old, told this fable: A jar of honey was upset in a housekeeper's room, and a number of flies were attracted by its sweetness. Placing their feet in it, the flies ate greedily. Their feet, however, became so smeared with honey that they could not use their wings, nor release themselves, and they were suffocated. Just as they were dying, they exclaimed: 'Oh, foolish creatures that we are, for the sake of a little pleasure we have destroyed ourselves.'
