The Ant and the Grasshopper - Aesop

This quote was added by jerrythebob
"Why bother about winter?" said the Grasshopper; "we have got plenty of food at present." But the Ant went on its way and continued its toil. When the winter came the Grasshopper had no food and found itself dying of hunger, while it saw the ants distributing every day corn and grain from the stores they had collected in the summer. Then the Grasshopper knew: It is best to prepare for the days of necessity.

Mate. You don't capitalize the first letter of an independent clause after a colon. In my infinite stupidity, I typed it out in a grammatically correct fashion and messed up because of that. :(
