Moral of the story - One swallow does not make a summer
A man who had wasted his fortune had nothing left but the
clothes he wore. On seeing a swallow one Spring morning he decided the weather would be warmer, so he sold his
coat. The weather however turned colder the next day and killed the swallow. When the shivering man saw the dead
swallow he moaned, "Thanks to you I am freezing."
