  *The Ant Philosophy*

*Over the years, I’ve been teaching kids about a simple but powerful
concept: the Ant Philosophy. I think everybody should study ants. They have
an amazing four-part philosophy.

Here is the first part: Ants never quit. That’s a good philosophy. If
they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they’ll look for another
way. They’ll climb over. They’ll climb under. They’ll climb around. They
keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy—to never quit looking
for a way to get where you’re supposed to go.*
Second, ants think winter all summer. That’s an important perspective. You
can’t be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants gather
their winter food in the middle of summer.

An ancient story says, “Don’t build your house on the sand in the summer.”
Why do we need that advice? Because it is important to think ahead. In the
summer, you’ve got to think storm. You’ve got to think rocks as you enjoy
the sand and sun.

The third part of the Ant Philosophy is that ants think summer all winter.
That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, “This
won’t last long; we’ll soon be out of here.” And the first warm day, the
ants are out. If it turns cold again, they’ll dive back down, but then they
come out the first warm day. They can’t wait to get out.

And here’s the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather
during the summer to prepare for the winter? All he possibly can. What an
incredible philosophy, the “all-you-possibly-can” philosophy.

Moral: Never give up, look ahead, stay positive and do all you can.

Dear Sir,

enterpretation of ant behaviour as phylosophy may not be a wise notation.  All living beings including human will have their own existence under the circumstance & conditions of living.  Whether the ant behaviour is good or bad can not be gussed through human eye .  If you can able to speak to ants, they may say so many problems which they are suffering from their community and for unplanned hard work.  Might is right policy prevailed in the ant community.   

Just for discussion.
