Once upon a time, there lived a poor farmer in a village with his wife. One day, the farmer bought a goose thinking that the goose will lay eggs which he can eat and sell the remaining. He took the goose home and made a nest for it to lay eggs.
Next day morning, the farmer went to the nest to check if the goose has laid any eggs. To his surprise, the goose had laid a golden egg. The farmer went to the town and sold the golden egg for a good price. The goose started laying a golden egg every day.
The farmer sold those eggs and made a good fortune. As the farmer started becoming richer and richer by selling the golden he became more greedy too.

One day, while the farmer and his wife were talking, his wife said:
"If we could get all the eggs that are inside the goose we could be richer faster”.

You are right, said the farmer, we wouldn't have to wait for the goose to lay her egg every day.
So, the couple decided to cut open the goose and get the gold mine inside the goose all at once
Next day, they went to the nest and killed the goose and cut her open only to find that she was just like every other goose. She didn’t have any golden eggs inside her.

Now, the farmer and his wife had lost the goose and they would never get any golden eggs again.
Moral of the story :

Think before you act

Too much greed always leads to great loss
The English idiom “kill not the goose that lays the golden egg” was also derived from this classic story.
