The Dog and the Shadow retold by Aesop 

A Dog was crossing a bridge with a piece of meat in his mouth when he saw his own shadow in the water. The Dog mistook this shadow for another Dog with a piece of meat twice the size of his own. The Dog let go of his meat and fiercely attacked the other Dog to get the larger piece. So he lost both pieces of meat: that which he grasped at in the water, because it was a shadow; and his own, because the stream carried it away. The moral is that you should not give up what you hold to chase shadows.
