Now again they are on the same track they were on or even in a rather worse situation, they get poor, lose their happiness and have regret for all their life.

However, I think for sure that every time they recite this story I totally enjoyed it and promised to not get greedy ever. This story I call the most popular because I am sure that many of us have been at least telling this story once already. So, summary lovers, let’s enjoy the unique version of this fantastic moral story of the golden goose.


Years back then, There used to live this poor man named john. He saw a lot of trouble and difficulties in his life and hence would understand the value of money. Though he was a wonderful man with unmatchable willpower, he would work really hard to make sure that they live a good life. However, through his life experience, he had got some shortcuts to get wealthy. He had his own ways to handle the situations and most of the time they proved to be effective for him. Though often he would end up making some foolishness. However it’s quite funny hearing a diligent man doing foolishness, but this is what John was.

John was a wife man, he would listen to his wife most of the time. He could have his own point of view but, his wife’s verdict would have been the last choice for him. Now, you can speculate how much he really loved his wife, Haha!.

Hey, I am not saying listening to his wife was wrong but failing to ascertain the decisions was his big failure. We might be wrong at times and other’s suggestions may be right, but, we must develop the ability to make the correct choice between the two.

The hardworking john

John had big dreams, he wanted to be a rich man hence he would work really hard to get richer soon. He had well-planned everything to ease his family’s living. He owned a lot of pet animals such as hens, cows, goats, geese etc.

John works hard to get rich


Hens would lay eggs every day, whereas he would get rather milk from his cows. He used to sell those eggs daily in the market and use the milk in the house. John’s wife would often prepare butter, cheese and yoghurt for them. His wife was really talented and especially a brilliant cook.

They were living a rather satisfying and good life but as we all know that John was over-obsessed with being affluent faster. Though it was also the reason which would compel him for extra work. But you know what!?, There are always two ways of achieving success, good and bad. However, while the obsession with fulfilling the needs some people quite often overlook their ways or deeds.


One pleasant morning, When john was busy doing his regular works he notices this surprising thing. He notices the goose with the golden egg, However at first he just could not understand it, but then his clever wife dispels all his doubts.

John- Darling come fast!, See what’s this!?, It seems someone has tried to make full of me by keeping this ordinary ball and stole the egg contrary. 

Wife- Where is it!?, Let me see first. Oh my god! It’s a pure golden egg laid by this goose. You are such a stupid man baby, Actually, you don’t even need to be fooled because you already are. Haha!.

John- What rubbish, How can a goose lay any golden egg?.

John tells his wife about the golden goose

Wife- Why not!?, If a man can call a golden egg, an ordinary ball. Then why can’t she lay a golden egg, Haha!. Ok fine, why don’t you see it yourself?.

John- Oh my goodness! it’s really a golden egg. I am going to be the richest man in this world, Yeah!.

John- hey darling, see this, how beautiful and shiny it is!?. It’s a pure gem, I am so lucky, I still can’t believe it. No, no I can’t think like this, I know what I am going to do with this.

Wife- What are you thinking? 

John- I am gonna sell this in the market and with that money I will fulfil all our needs, what say?.

Wife- yeah, sounds good.


With time, John became the richest man. Now, he had a big house, car, luxury furniture, and all the amenities he desired. He was living a true royal life and hence had emerged as a popular face in the city. Everyone started knowing and visiting his house, he would do plenteous of exotic businesses with them and make a lot more money. Whereas his wife had also changed completely, she had started going to the salon and spend a hefty amount on shopping. she had learnt a lot about fashion and would keep changing lipsticks regularly. Like John, she was not obsessed with becoming the richest woman in the world instead she just wanted to look and eat healthy and beautiful, haha!.John celebrates his richness

Ok, if I were in john’s place and had become that rich then the first thing I had done would have been searching my name on google. Then after seeing my name on the top of the page of ”worlds richest person of the world”, I had taken its screenshot and put that into my WhatsApp status, haha!. Hey guys, do comment below what would you have done being at john’s place?.

Greed leads to endless pain and despondency

As John was getting richer his hunger for becoming more richer was increasing too. He wanted to touch that pinnacle, no one would even imagine getting on. As a gist, he had set some really potent milestones for himself based on his unimaginable greed. Actually, this man had turned even more greedy than ever before.

Now, this was not right. Though he had no idea whatsoever about the consequences of his deadly covetousness. I think, Had he known about it, he would not have dared to do, what he does later in the story.

John- I want to become richer, I am not satisfied yet. I have been working so hard all these years and now when I have the opportunity to become richer, I just can’t let it go.

Wife- What happened, you look worried, darling!?.

John wife suggesting him to kill the goose John- Baby, I firmly believe that we can make more money than we are making now. The substantial amount of money we do make is still with that golden goose. She is still our lucky charm.

Wife- Wait, if we kill her and take out all the eggs she has inside her belly then would not that be amazing. We will have innumerable golden eggs and that would take us to the pinnacle you have been dreaming to reach. 

John- Great idea baby, You are such a darling!. Now that’s why I call you super smart. you are unquestionably the woman behind all my success and again you are underlying a great success. 

Wife- would not I say, you don’t know me well!?. however, I am finally happy that you realized my wisdom.



Both start celebrating the moment. But who knew that the celebration was soon going to convert into mourn. By the way, I too think that they were really so lucky, The goose they had, had not died by that time nor got any kind of severe injury.  That’s amazing! But you know what!?, A lucky foolish like john cannot avail advantage of his opportunities.

However, if I had one of those golden balls then I would have made plenty of prank videos on it and uploaded it on YouTube. Hey summary lovers, does not it sound like john’s idea, haha!.

However Coming back to the story of the golden goose, John promptly rushes to the goose along with his wife. He kills the goose in no time and, Hey what’s this!, It’s just Nothing, haha!.

the goose is murderedJohn- where are all those golden eggs?.

Wife- It was supposed to be here, search it well, darling!

John- There are no such golden balls at all, If you don’t believe, find yourself. (John replies angrily)

Now you guys can better imagine that situation that occurred between John and his wife. The angry eyes of john, the guilt of john’s wife, The regret of john and whatnot, haha!.

They lose everything with time and again became poor, however, john still was hardworking, haha!. Although he never remained any greedy man, he had learnt a robust lesson from that incident. Although whatever happens, happens for a reason. John had leant an invaluable life lesson from his own life and did retain that in his mind forever. Guys that’s why they say wisdom is way more valuable than wealth, haha!.
