The Miser (A short story by Aesop)

A Miser had a lump of gold which he buried in the ground, coming to look at the sport every day. One day he found that it was stolen, and he began to tear his hair and loudly lament. A neighbor, seeing him, said: “Pray do not grieve so; bury a stone in the hole, and fancy it is the gold. It will serve you just as well, for when the gold was there, you made no use of it.”
