The Giver !!

 
Let me tell you a story about the pig and the cow,” 
“The pig was unpopular while the cow was beloved. This puzzled the pig.
 ‘People speak warmly of your gentle nature and your sorrowful eyes,’ the pig said to the cow.
‘They think you’re generous because each day you give them milk and cream.
But what about me? I give them everything I have. I give bacon and ham.
I provide bristles for brushes. They even pickle my feet ! Yet not one likes me. Why is that?'”
 
“Dear friends …Do you know what the cow answered?” 
“The cow said,’Perhaps it is because I give while I’m still living.'”
