    Valencia Internacional


    A caterpillar was walking towards a big mountain when he came across a grasshopper.


    The grasshopper asked him , “Where are you going”?

    The caterpillar answered him as he was walking: “I dreamnt that I went up a mountain, and from the top I could see all the valley. I really liked what I saw, and so I have decided to climb the mountain”

    The grasshopper looked at him and said, “You gotta be crazy!

    How are you going to get there? For you, a puddle of water is like a lake, and a rock is like an uncrossable hill”

    The caterpillar paid no attention to the grasshopper and kept on walking.

    Further ahead, a mole, a spider and a frog also told him that it was impossible.

    “You will never be able to achieve your dream of reaching the top of the mountain”, they told the caterpillar.

    Tired and exhausted, the caterpillar stopped to rest to build a safe place to spend the night.

    “Tomorrow I will be better he said to himself…..and then he died.

    On finding out what happened, the animals of the valley went to see his dead body.

    There lied on the gound the poor crazy caterpillar who had died to fullfill his dream while sleeping in his refuge.

    Suddenly the refuge began to collapse and a beautiful butterfly came out and started to fly towards the mountain.


    The grasshopper and the other animals then realized that they were very mistaken.

    We must always try to achieve our dreams, and if we see that we can´t, perhaps we should stop to make a radical change in our lives.

    We must not forget that being successful in life is not measured by achievments, but by all the obstacles that we have had to overcome along the way.
