They thought he was ugly, ugly.
Unable to bear the humiliation, the duckling escaped and longI am wandering, suffering hardship and danger. And next spring he saw beautiful birds on the lake, swam to him and he saw in the water, that he became a beautiful bird - a swan.

What is the moral of the fairy tale "The Ugly Duckling"
The main purpose of Andersen's fairy tales is thatwe must steadfastly and patiently endure hardship, adversity. Unfortunate duckling (who was actually a swan) had to withstand a variety of severe test at the beginning of his life. He was teased and bullied rough relatives. He turned away from her own mother-duck, fearing public opinion. Then, when he fled from the poultry yard and made friends with the wild geese, geese killed these hunters, and the duckling escaped miraculously. After this poor duckling picked up an old woman, and brought to his house. But its inhabitants - a cat and a chicken - laughed at the new tenant and unceremoniously teach "good sense." Duckling had to leave the house of the old woman, he spent the winter in the reeds of the lake, where the following spring met the beautiful swans. And the fairy tale ended in a happy outcome.
The moral of this tale is that life canto present a lot of hard tests, but we must not be discouraged and do not give up. After-swan duckling was very difficult, but he survived and eventually became happy.
Likewise, the person who does not bow before fate may eventually triumph.
Because of what all started duckling woes
Morality tales consists in the fact that it is not necessaryafraid to be different. Duckling differed in appearance from the other ducklings. That is, it was not like others. And so it began to tease and poison ducks. Why was he scolded and taught unceremoniously cat and chicken? Because he did not behave as it should. That is, again, it was not like others! At the duckling had a choice: either to accept the fact that you can not be different either appearance or behavior or habits, or to behave in accordance with the principle: "Yes, I'm different, but I have a right!" And he did this choice, not fearing that incur misunderstanding, abuse and even persecution.
One should also defend the right to be yourself, even if it means going against public opinion.
Some experts on creativity Andersen believethat the image of the ugly duckling fairy tale author painted it himself. After all, Andersen also had to endure a lot of ridicule, misunderstanding and arrogant teachings from the people around them, before he became a famous writer, and it looks very different from the image of "average" Dane. Never give up, fight for their happiness, in spite of all obstacles.
