You Can't Drown Them: Because they do their Job and they work for something Greater Than Themselves.
Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
When will you get up from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—
and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man.
Why You Wanna Be An Ant Not A Dog
A little sleep, a little slumber. It sounds appealing, it beckons at your tired soul, but is this who you want to become? The dog sleeps, the dog must be called upon, the dog listens and is obedient, but it needs a ruler. A dog is cute but is your goal to be cute in life? A dog operates as a social being but doesn’t use its abilities to progress the community. Are you living your life like a dog or like an ant?
