Once upon a time, there was a poor fisherman who always dreamed of becoming rich. He wished to become a millionaire, and so did his wife.
He had heard from some old men before, that several ships loaded with diamonds and gold had once sunk in the nearby seashore.
Because of this, for a long time he kept searching that whole area for this treasure.
One day, while he was sitting on the boat daydreaming, he suddenly felt that the fishing rod was being weighed down by a heavy object.
He excitedly pulled hard at it, and what he saw made him exclaim,“Wow! A big, shiny gold chain!”
He pulled hard at the gold chain to get it into the boat, but there seemed to be no end to it. His boat started to get over-loaded and the sea water filled his boat.
However, he had begun dreaming of a big house, a big piece of land and buying horses and cows...He kept pulling in the chain though the boat kept sinking.
The boat was finally submerged and he struggled to stay afloat. Unfortunately his feet were entangled in the gold chain and he drowned.
Though fortunes achieved through hard work and other qualities can make people live cozily, they should never be considered as the aim of living. Therefore, in the process of seeking fortunes,people should never get them at the cost of life and other important things.
