The Fox And The Grapes Story In English

Somewhere in a dense forest, a fox is walking around on a sunny afternoon. He spots a beautiful grapevine trailing on the bark and branches of a tree.

The fox is filled with joy as the grapes look tasty and ready to burst with their sweet juices. With hunger and temptation, the fox tries to reach the tasty grapes. But the grapes are too high to reach, and hence the fox decides to jump and reach the lowest branch. He tries and tries but in vain.

The poor fox walks a few meters away to take a running leap at the grapevine.

The hanging grapes appear near, but when the fox tries to jump and pluck them, they suddenly seem very far. The poor fox tries again but has no luck!

Disappointed, he gives up and looks at the grapes with disgust.

He frowns and walks away thinking the grapes may be sour anyway and says,

“Why am I whining about eating grapes that are sour?” 

Moral Of The Story

It is easy to give up, but the real strength is built when we keep fighting until we succeed. In this story, the fox failed and left with bitterness.
