A little in hand is worth more Than a Great Thing in Prospect



It happened that a fisherman, after fishing all day, caught only a little fish.
"Pray, let me go, master," said the fish, I am much too small for your
eating just now. If you put me back into the river I shall soon grow, then
you can make a fine meal off me."
"Nay, nay, my little fish," said the fisherman, l have you now, I may
not catch you afterwards."
